I am looking for a recommendation for a closed headphone under 300 dollars (or so) that is good for rock and has a very forward sound stage. I recently bought a pair of Grado SR 225i's and thought they were too "thin" sounding and lacked low end. However, I did like their upfront sound stage and presentation overall. There just seemed to be something missing. I have also tried Sennheiser HD 448s, Audiotechnica AT-M50s, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro-80 ohm version, Denon 1001s, and am currently trying Sennheiser HD 380 Pro, which I like, but it doesn't suit my taste for rock - the sound is too recessed in my opinion..
Does anyone have any suggestions? I heard that Sennheiser HD 25 1- II are good for rock and have the "on the stage" sound. I will be wearing these all day in the office and comfort and isolation will be important. I am also using the IBasso D4 mamba Amp/DAC so amplification should not be a problem. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
