Hi-ho from Germany, dear Head-Fiers!
I use to read here for about the last ten years.
Since then I've owned round about 50 headphones (from DT231 up to HD800), but they are/were mainly open ones.
My experience with closed headphones is very little.
Well, finally, I've decided to register to ask you an (at least for me) important question:
Which headphone of the ones I'll type the name of here suites the needs I have best?!
My needs ("perfect headphone"):
The cans should be over-ear built.
The cans should work out of an headphone amp as well as out of a Creative X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card.
soundstage: small to average size
bass: strong (defined, but not overpowering)
bass impact: strong to very strong
mids: good resolution, not recessed (maybe only slightly recessed)
highs: not too harsh (the lesser the sibilance is, the better it is for my taste)
comfort: very good (it should easily be able to be worn several hours at a time)
PRICE: max. 200 €uros
Shure SRH-750 DJ
Sony MDR-XB 500
Sony MDR-XB 700
Maybe too expansive:
[beyerdynamic DT770/250 Ed.05]
[Sennheiser HD25-1 II]
[Klipsch Image ONE]
So you see, I know what I want, but I'm not sure how to get it.
If you think, that there is any other headphone that could satisfy my needs, than let me know it.
