First time post on this forum. I have been beating my head trying to decide what headphones I want but I am unable to come to a clear and outstanding answer. I was hoping the more experienced listeners here might be able to point me in the right direction. I am aware that this must have been asked a million times already but the answers are always so varied in opinion and the various cases of the people asking the questions are usually different.
I listen to only electronic music, specifically this genre called house and deep house. No trance and dubstep etc... Most of the music in my collection consists of stronger bass, mid bass and mid and less highs. The highs are just there to sort of complete the track and are not too pronounced and that is how I like it.
Here are a few examples of what I listen to :
this covers the bass, mid bass and mid. Highs and vocals in here as well.
Here is another one (more mid and bass oriented)
The reason that I am upgrading is basically for the overall quality of the sound. I am upgrading from a regular in ear bose phones and want to spend up to $600-$650 with a headphone amp.
As I said, I would like a pair that can reproduce clearly the bass and mid without crossing over. Meaning, the bass should stay bass and mid should stay mid. Something that can reproduce the 'texture' of the bass as opposed to just a characterless boom boom boom. Something with balanced sound without sacrificing the energy and 'fun' of the music.
I was looking into the following. (Please keep in mind that the following is an opinion I have formed reading various reviews from multiple sources)
Sennheiser HD 650: This pair has insanely good reviews for my price range. Overall sound quality seems to be excellent but it seems to be lacking in the bass/punch side of things.
Denon AH-D2000: I read that it has excellent bass and excellent highs. Covers the fun factor that I am looking for seems to be lacking in the mid area.
Ultrasone Pro-900: I read that the bass reproduction on these are better than on the Denons but once again, it sacrifices the mid, although they are better than the Denons, or so I read.
So, what do you guys suggest I should look into? Please help me spend my money on the right product for me. I hope you guys are able to help.
Thanks in advance :)
