I have a digital piano and a Sony SBC HP195 that desperately needs replacement. I already asked some opinions on a dedicated piano forum, but I guess your input could be a valuable addition as well.
I understand that reviews are based on usage with normal stuff such as Mp3, stereo etc. A good headphone can sound great but flat and thin at the same time when used with a digital piano.
I have put a lot of hours in setting up the following list of headphones that I want to choose from:
Beyerdynamic DT 990
I hate my old Sony's. They are flat and have a very thin bass. So I expect a big improvement.
-Grado SR60i's- Great for rock, classical music etc. Ton's of admirers throughout the web. Shame for its on-ear design and uncomfortable headband. It needs to be comfortable because I will use it for extended periods of time.
-Sennheiser 595- Very comfortable. Lacks in bass.
-AKG- Nice full round, warm bass, but the headband slips from the head and can be uncomfortable at times. Would benefit from an amp.
-Beyerdynamic- Same as AKG. But probably misses out on the mids and treble. Is semi closed a big difference to open?
I don't have the money for a good amp and I don't want to invest in one either, because it would be an overkill for my budget piano.
Any advice would be appreciated.
