I'm looking for headphones that have a good soundstage and decent bass for all sorts of electronic dance music; however, I'm not looking to use an amp, nor am I willing to spend more than 100 (MAYBE just a bit more) because I have a near perfect collection of IEMs at home and really don't need anything else.
Right now, I'm using my cousin's Sennheiser hd 238s and those blew me away in terms of soundstage and bass (believe it or not, this is coming from a guy who used to own the Sennheiser hd 800s) and they actually made me feel like I was in a danceable atmosphere, so I'm looking for a slight upgrade to those.
I looked at these already:
-Sennheiser HD 555 - good clarity, but not enough bass
-Audio-Technica ATH-AD700s - massive sound stage, clear sound, but bass is too light
-Sennheiser HD 485- THIS is what I want! So what's the problem? Discontinued
Clarity is not the most important thing for me (after all, I have CK10s, the ER4Ps, and the UM3xs), but a simulated feel, great bass, and soundstage are.
