I had klipsch image x10. I was deeply amazed how clear the sound can be from sub 200 IEM. I instantly fell in love with it's superb punchy bass,until yesterday. I left my klipsch in the laundry.
I'm looking for pair of cans that can satisfy my picky needs. I listen mainly to techno(60%) and hiphop(40%) for about 4-5hrs daily. I'm also a producer(just as a hobby), and most of my musics are FLAC coded. I don't record any vocals (thanks to my vocaloids) so I don't care if the headphones are open or closed.
As for my device, I use my ancient ipod video 5G with no amp. I never owned pair of headphones that's over $100, so i need some input form you head-fiers.
