Looking for some help on what to get. - Page 2

I went back to BB but this time I had several good cd quality tracks on my phone. First I listened to the P5s. This time the sound was just about perfect. Nice tight bass, great highs and good mids. Then I went and did the same to the to the HD558s. It seemed to have a little more on the high side but not as much on the lower end. They had some others that I didnt like. Pioneer SE-MJ591, Audio Tecnica ATH-A900X, AKG-K495NC, AKG-K550, and one other one that had wood on the cans.

Is your phone going to be "the" source for your music - are you looking for something that's geared toward portability?

When you say "wood on the cans" - the HD 598s have wood on them. Or do you mean a full woodie? Like the W1000X?

Anyways, the "ranking" in the gear section I think is based on popularity, not anything objective - sort of like Product Wiki - but I'm not certain. There is no universal "best headphone in the world."

Just the outside of the can was a wood cover. I think if there was a headphone that had just a little more bass and had the highs of the 558s that would be the ticket.

Like this:
350

Or like this:
255

Also, try the higher end Sennheisers - like the HD 600.

I am thinking that I will order the Grado 325is.

Wait, you want bass and smooth response, and you're going to get the SR-325?

Well from what I have read they have good highs and the bass is not bad either. I like the sound of the P5s, it just needs a bit more top and bottom.

They will have substantially more up top (than most headphones; they border on aggressive) and less on bottom than quite a few headphones. Allow me to introduce you to the world of measurements:
