Hello to you all! I hate starting new threads ,but i thought it would be nice to give you a laugh at what i'm becoming through this forum.
I started out 15 years ago searching for a decent sounding headphone. Look at what i need this month and understand why i want to punch myself:
I want a truly portable on-the-ear headphone that:
-Is very good overall (better than say...the senns hd 238) with detail but not too clinical and analytical.But fun.
-NO bass rolloff.Even driven with an iphone.If it could go down to -50Hz i'd be happy.
-Leakage has to be minimal so that other people and nearby mic's can't hear what i listen to, but isolation should be a lot less than that of an iem.
Headphones i've looked into and why i didn't buy them:
akg q460 : Loved the form factor.Leak was bearable.Sound over 1kHz was just bad.
sennheiser hd 25 sp : Good,maybe a bit bigger than i wanted,two-sided cable annoying,a bit of bass rolloff..
aiaiai tracks : Haven't heard them myself, supposedly they leak a lot, for a retro inspired can i find them futuristic looking!
hd228 : I don't find them good enough,don't like how they look, also i have the 238
Notes: I wanted to share my experience more than beg for your help this time...
-I find myself drawn to my triple fi's and i dont like iem fit and isolation and the fact that its not the easiest thing to put them on and take them off all the time...
-I wish i had more info on hd 25 sp .Everyone always says :Buy the hd 25 ii,but they're in a different price range!
-I have the roland rh5.they're semi open.Their leak is minimal and i can hear my voice when speaking.They're ok and cheap.I thought i could get something much better and smaller for more $...
Thanks for your patience!
