I need some better headphones for my new Sansa Clip+.
I already own two pairs of on-ear neckband style headphones that I tried: Sony MDR-G42 and Panasonic RP-HG11 and I also tried 3 or 4 very cheap in-ear (I don't know if I shoul call them monitors). Between these I prefer the Sony MDR-G42 for a more natural sound to my ears, as the ear-canal earphones that I tried produce a boomy, "barrel bottom", closed sound that is not natural and I don't like. I like to push up a little bass and treble in the EQ but not to overdo it.
I read that generally headphones with a larger driver produce better sound that IEMs, but this I suppose is relative to the specific models you compare.
I only want neckband or in-ear. No headband or earbuds. And I'd also like to know if better quality in-ear type produce more natural open sound comparable to on-ear type headphones.
My budget is up to 60 USD.
So if I don't care about noise isolation or form factor which of these headphones produce better audio quality?
And will PMX-60 / 90 / SHS5200 be better than Sony MDR-G42?
