Hello. I am new here, and would like your recommendations.
As I've been around since BBS's in the 1980's, I will try my best to provide information and parameters so that I don't sound (no pun intended) completely like a newbie.
I listen in a noisy environment. Also, active noise cancellation of any kind gives me a nauseated sensation. Always has, still does (last tried it with the Beats--nausea lasted for hours after I took them off).
So. I currently use Shure SE530, and they sound pretty good. However, after a while I am physically uncomfortable, and so look for headphones. I have tried low end (don't sound too good), Bose AE2 (they just make me sad), Phiaton (strange response), and that';s it. I listen to my Zune 120, and listen to 320 bit for the most part, rock songs from the 60's and 70's. I tried listning to a Beats Pro detox in a store, and they sounded pretty good (maybe too much in the treble, maybe not, but pretty good).
Now I am reading about the Ultrasone 900, and don't know much about that.
So, with these parameters and constraints, along with a budget of spending no more than street price of 4-500, what would you recommend?
