Hey, I have been searching for the past week for my next pair of headphones, but it has been really hard to decide which one and I'm not able to test any in my area.
I listen literally to ALL genres, from trash metal to bossa nova, I need them to be closed and portable but I would rather an over ear design, since I want to use them at home and at school.
What I don't like:
I know it's too much to ask but if you have an opinion about how they would perform as a studio monitor, please let me know.
I have owned:
Grado SR-80i - Still, got them, I found their highs to be at the limit of what I would start to consider harsh, and lack a little bit of bass punch.
Sennheiser HD 555 - I liked their overall sound, but they lacked bass, and I felt like they needed an amp, but I never got one. I no longer own them.
Sennheiser HD 428 - Meh, lacked overall strenght, a good start.
Some crappy $20 Sonys ;D - No comment
I know this topic has been repeated thousands of times here but everyone has a different need :)
Thanks in advance :)
