After reading what seems like hundreds of reviews all over the net, I am still totally impartial as to which cans I should get between the following three.
Bowers and Wilkins - P5 @ $182
TDK - ST800 @ $118
Shure - SRH840 @ Roughly $130-$150
Consider the following:
-I mostly listen to Electronic. Massive Attack, Royksopp, Gorillaz, The Presets and Empire of the Sun are among my tops. However, I do also really enjoy all Rock music, Orchestral and occasionally Hip-Hop. I love bass, but true bass. I like to hear different tones of lows. It doesn't have to be powerful, just clear. Lastly, they will mostly be used at home hooked into a computer, but from time to time I'd like to be able to use them on the go. In other words, excessively clunky cans will not do.
I thought it would be important to supply a couple of my favorite sounding songs because I have personally found that some cans sound better to certain people, although I won't claim to understand this beautiful science.
Reference: I currently own Monster Turbine Copper (In-Ears) and that is all. I am returning them because they have this stupid Glue issue on the shell, which I have to return them for, for the second time. I love these earbuds, but jesus they don't stay together! Before that, I owned the Shure SE210 In-Ears.
I've included the prices because these are the prices I get them for, new, as part of my staff pricing. So if anyone can lend me a hand, that would be fantastic. It sounds like I'm asking a lot here, hope I'm not.
(PS.- I realize one or more of these may not be considered cans, I just like saying cans.)
