I'm looking for headphones that sound really crisp, really sharp - sound that compliments folk and bluegrass very well. I have some headphones to compliment other genres well, but nothing for folk. Some alternative rock and things of that nature also would probably be suitable, depending on where you place bands like Marcy Playground and Cake. Either way, the headphones I already own are the V-Moda M80, Creative Aurvana Live!, Audio-Technica AD700, Phillips Stretch and the Oldskool 33 1/3. As far as earbuds go, I have the Brainwavs Beta, Brainwavs M4, and the Ultimate Ears TripleFi.
I'm looking for headphones, not earbuds - was just listing some of the earbuds I own and like. Some bands I'll be listening to include Larry and His Flask, Cake, Dr. Dog, Anais Mitchell, Ani DiFranco, Grouplove, Craig Finn, The Dear Hunter and a ton of others. Anyway - I don't need heavy base, I'm looking for something crisp, sharp .. clear and potentially neutral? Two sets of headphones I've really been eyeing as "to get" are the Brainwavs HM5 (FA-003) and the Grado SRI225.
