I'm new here but have been doing a lot of searching on the forums and haven't been able to find anything quite like what I'm looking for. I'm a long time musician who is finally deciding to really make the jump into being more of an audiophile. I have a nice set of studio monitors that I love at home but I need a set of headphones at the office.
I'd really like something thats going to be really flat so as to compliment my KRK V6 monitors that I use when at home. I bought a pair of KRK KNS 8400s and love them but they are a closed can and too isolating at the office. I need to be able to hear whats going on around me.
I like a really clear bass and clean bass not super boomy.
Open Can - to hear people talking to me
Flat sound - as similar to studio monitors as I can get
Comfort - I'm looking for something I can wear 6+ hours a day
Microphone not necessary but is a plus
available on amazon.com (I have a gift card)
I think I like stuff with a big soundstage
What I listen to:
VOIP phone calls (I'm in an office on the phone a lot, already have a mic)
Jazz Fusion (Chic Corea, Brecker Bros, etc.)
STS9, Ulrich Snauss, Solar Fields, light electronic - not thumpy dance music / dubstep
Other Headphones I have used:
PC360's - really liked these for the day that I borrowed them from a friend, but a bit out of my price range
KRK 8400s - LOVE EM, just a bit hot and too closed for my purpose
Grado s80i / 125 - going to audition these this week
I live in the San Fernando Valley near Los Angeles and would love to find places to go try out some headphones if anybody has recommendations.
Thanks for any help :)
