Any advice would be much appreciated...
I'll be listening to mainly indie/alternative (Arcade Fire, Sigur Ros, Kings of Leon etc), and am looking for headphones with really warm bass which will pick out elements in my music which I haven't been able to hear on lesser headphones (I previously had Klipsch S4s).
I've heard that the UEs are warmer, bring the different instruments together better, and are technically more capable.
However, I've heard that the Shures are more detailed and have a better 'sound stage,' which I think is to do with the 'surround sound' nature of the music...how well the layers are separated, and whereabouts the sounds are coming from....?
So: are the UEs going to be muddy, overly-simplify the music and lack detail....are the Shures going to be cold, analytical and lacking bass?
Any advice from personal experience would be much appreciated, thanks!
