So my current setup is Sennheiser HD-650s using an iBasso T3 portable amp on a Cowon S9. I also have a Cardas cable coming.


What I'm wondering is for the price range of $250 - $450ish if there is something that you guys prefer more (e.g. Grado R2i, Denon AH-D5000). I listen to mostly hip hop, R&B, house, and some alternative/rock. 


I also have the Denon AH-D2000s because I like the bass and like the closed ear aspect for traveling. 


Anyways, feel free to shoot out models you guys like. I used to have the Grado SR225is and I really liked those. 


Not looking to spend over $500 so Beyer T1 and Sennheiser HD-850 are out of the question.

I can tell you that if you really like the Denon AH-D2000, you will really really like the AH-D5000. I was pleasantly surprised by the difference, tightness of the response, natural tones and bass.
