I used to own a Sennheiser HD201, which I used for everything: gaming, music (lots of genres), and movies. It has finally kicked the bucket. I am now looking for a closed back headphone which can be considered an upgrade. The following characteristics are very important:
Flat frequency response, I like a good balance between lows, mids and highs, I cannot listen to mid recessed headphones.
Decent soundstage, for movies and games.
Price, under $100 USD maybe.
They will be powered by onboard audio.
From my research, I am considering the JVC HA-RX700, Sony MDR-V6, Sony MDR-ZX700, Creative Aurvana Live!, Audio-technica ATH-A700.
Ok, here's the big problem. the RX700 seems to have a slight bit of recessed mids, the V6 seems to have a small soundstage, the CAL also seems to have recessed mids, the ZX700 hasn't got much reviews, and the AD700 seems to be a bit bass anemic.
What should I get?
Also, feel free to make other recommendations the price should be under 100, I am willing to spend over, if there's huge improvement.
