General "warm" headphones. (Suggestion thread)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Even though I have no immediate plans to buy a set of portable headphones anytime soon, I am planning to get one in a couple months. I already have an IEM and 2 circumaural headphones, so I thought I might as well get a portable one for whenever I feel like it.

 

So here's my Info:

- Listen to mainly Power Metal(Emphasis on Guitars and Drums), J-Pop, Jazz, and Rock in general.

- Price range doesn't matter at the moment, but definitely nothing over $300, unless it is a near perfect headphone for me.

- No strong preference on Closed or Open, but leaning towards closed, but SQ>design.

- As suggested by topic, an overall Warm sound signature, but with emphasis on mids also.

- No real preference on treble, just not too bright.

- Usage at the moment is unknown, but probably indoors, but might take them outside once in a while.

- Detail bass> bass quantity

- Using itouch 16g -> iBasso T3, soon replaced with cowon J3.

 

Thanks

Skullcandy seems to be perfect for you, no question about it. There are also Bose which I read were fantastic.

Best advice I've ever seen on these forums TBQH.

Sennheiser PX-100 might be right up your alley if you're looking for mid-range sound.  They are not overly bright either.
