I've been meaning to get myself my first pair of headphones, but since no headphones are perfect, I am thinking of getting two.
Jaben in my country is having a sale, buy one Beyerdynamics DT1350 and get a free Shure SRH 750DJ. That really caught my attention. I like the DT1350 for its mids and highs, I think it's a great phone for overall balance but probably not too good for my genre Rock and Heavy Metal. The Shure SRH750 DJ have the attack and clarity. Roughly costs about USD$400 after converted. (Yes, in my country taxes are pretty high I get them at much higher prices). But I have the urge to own Grados.
Then again I researched for my preferred sound signature and these two topped the list, Grado SR60i and V-MODA M-80 (not sure about the V-MODA M-80 though). I like the Grado's sound signature for Rock music. And the other phone, I would like a bassy phone with clarity and presence across the sound spectrum and I thought of M-80s. Any other thoughts on this? Recommendation of other phones below $200 would be welcomed.
I would actually like a portable phone but I am leaning to wait for the release of M-100 too. I think it would sound sick.
To make it short,
Beyer DT1350+Shure SRH750DJ
Grado SR60i+V-MODA M-80/other recommendations.
I mostly listen to Rock, Heavy Metal, Folk, and Jazz.
Bands like Queen, Jerry Garcia Band, Jimi Hendrix, Wild Cherry, Ella Fitzgerald, RHCP, Rage Against The Machine, Ray LaMontagne, Death Angel, Pantera, Mono, Led Zeppelin, Russian Circles, Dream Theater, Nile, Carcass and something alone those lines.
