It's been a while since I've been active on Head-Fi, but I know how we are with the holy-wars on full size phones. That being said, I'm not looking to get Sennheisers. Just throwing that out there. I am however, looking to upgrade my Audio Technica ATH-A700s. What is the next level up in terms of headphones? I don't want to drop $300 bucks on top of the line ones, but I'm not going to be stingy either.
I currently use a Fiio e7 DAC from my laptop for listening purposes.
Bass response is very important to me as I listen to a lot of electronic music. Read: I like lots of BASS.
I'd also want circumaural, closed back headphones, as I'm goign to college this fall and don't want to be a nisance.
Any suggestions would be great, and I can answer any questions about my requirements. Also, if you think you can convince my otherwise regarding my requirements go ahead! I try to be open minded.
