Hey everyone, this is my first post, and my first real step into hi-fi headphones really. My last pair of headphones was the Bose Noise Canceling Headphones, which bit the dust a year ago, and I'm ready for something new that is not an over-expensive name brand.
What I like about music is that I like bass that is not too overpowering, but can give a little kick. I really like mids. The treble is tricky because it can always be too shrill, but I don't want it to be gone. I am looking to spend around $100-$150. I've looked at a few cans on this site (HD 595, SRH840, ATH-900, and AH-D1100). The HD 595 caught my eye the most, it's the most attractive in my eyes, and they look to be pretty comfortable. I am going to be using regular apple earbuds for travel/walking to school, but when I am sitting down in a coffee shop or at home or anywhere, I'd like to use these headphones. I don't want complete isolation, but I don't want the world to know what I am listening to. I also hate when noise canceling creates too much pressure (i.e. a lot of Bose IMO). Headaches, headaches, headaches! So I guess something in between haha.
Lastly, I like to listen to a variety of things. I like to listen to Jazz, Rock, Indie, Classical, Ambient, Electronic, and Hip Hop. I have a feeling there isn't a headphone that can cover all of these genres unless I want to spend the big bucks, but I want one that can at least make the effort to make other genres of music sound good. I don't think I want to purchase an amp btw.
So what would you recommend :)
