Dear fellow head-fi-ers, you have helped me immensely choosing an open headphone.
And now I could really use some help choosing a closed headphone!
I sold my DT770 because well I really hated the sound, the sibilance and the floppy bass are just plain awfull (imo).
I used the new acquired money to buy a HD650, and will never let it go.
The problem is, I need a closed, low impedance headphone for playing the drumkit and portable uses.
I have read great things about both the shure SRH840 and the ath-m50 where the shure's seem to be a little bit more balanced and this is something I prefer.
Ofcourse any other great closed headphone will do too.
However, the shure's frequency responses seem to imply great sibilance, something I deeply, deeply hate. Maybe the shure SRH750DJ's are a bit less sibilant?
What I seek in a closed headphone:
Good soundstage (for a closed headphone)
Tight bass, but also deep bass.
Crisp highs, but absolutely no sibilance please!
Isolution, but not HD-25-II kind of isolation, I still like hearing my drumkit! (not anymore)
Around 150 euro's/USD's
Thanks for reading!
EDIT: Turns out I don't like hearing my drumkit, I just bought a new China cymbal which kills my hearing! Sounds awesome though:D (as long as I still have the ability to hear sounds)
