I'm looking for another pair of cans that I is driven well by an iPod (actually it's a Zune, but that shouldn't make a big difference) without the need for an external amplifier. Price shouldn't be much higher than 200€ (250$) Hopefully, some of you guys can help me find something.
I mainly listen to Electro/Dubstep, Rock (e.g.Muse, Hard-Fi), Alternative (Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys), so these are the genres that the headphones should shine at.
I don't really care whether they are closed or open-back, so far I usually use my Phiaton MS 400 on the train/plane, and would probably use the new headphones mainly at home. I thought about getting the Grado Sr225i or the Ultrasone HFI 2400 cans, but I have not yet had an opportunity to try them out.
Considering the information you have, which headphones would you guys recommend? If there's any more information you need, just let me know. Thanks a lot!
