I currently have the sony mdr-7506/v-6 ( not too much of a difference from what I have heard), and I was looking for an upgrade.
I am a no audophile, but I could immediately tell the difference between these and the apple ipod headphones. So I was looking for something a litter better. Some of the reviews of the 7506 mention that they are harsh, and I tend to agree with that. Some of my favorite tracks sound a bit boomy, or harsh, and even fatiguing after several minutes. Is this a notable problem with these headphones, and will more expensive headphones fix this? If so, which ones?
Also, I dont have much of a budget, just as long they are around 300$. My main uses will be laptop, or an ipod. That does not mean I want portable headphones though. I want full size headphones, and preferably 'closed'.
