First of all, I am new here and I dont know right ways here, so I am sorry if I miss smth.
Since I got some money to spare I got an idea to get some good sounding headphones. Firstly I would say I want some upgrade from Senns HD595 I used to have (sold them few months ago). My primary audio source is Cowon J3 and if it will be needed I may buy some quality portable amp.
I am looking for headphones with good-excellent soundstage, preferably well ballanced but I dont mind some warm sound signature. I also want them to be able to provide really deep basses with nice impact if I need them, basically to feel them in my chest :P. Sound isolation isnt a must for me, I am gonna use them at home, so it doesnt matter whether they are closed or not. They also have to be comfortable, but I guess in this price range everything is somehow comfortable. I also like good and somehow exceptional look, so the prettier they are the better.
About what I am gonna listen to, I have wide warriety of genres in my playlists, from symphonical/violin/piano/trumpet classics and choruses, through Jazz (and Brass Bands), Funky, Pop to techno, Rock/Metal and movie soundtracks. To name few artists/bands: Vanessa Mae, Wynton Marsalis, Louis Armstrong, Escala, Michael Jackson, Queen, Iron Maiden, Immediate Music, Nightwish and so on. I will also use them for playing games, but thats not rly smth I would take into account since everything above 60$ is good for games.
To give a bit of background of what I am used to, as I said above, I used to have Sennheiser HD595 which I happend to like them (well, didnt have anything in similar price range to compare them to, so I somehow had to like them :P ). Before I had gaming headsets Icemat Siberia and Steelseries 5h v2, which arent rly music friendly :P. Currently I am using my Audio-Technica ATH-EW9, they are excellent portable clip ons, but not so much for home use, especially not for straights 12 hours of use.
My personal favourite is currently Audio Technica ATH-W1000x, they have nice reviews and whats a big plus, they look great. They are (visualy) perfect complement to my ATH-EW9s, cherry wood, simply awesome. But if there some better headphones for less than 650$ I may reconsider.
Thx for any suggestions in advance.
