Hello, Head-Fi folks!
So, the last post I made, I was considering stepping things up, but life happened, money was gone and everything sucked. Since then, though, I've toyed around with demo headphones in Best Buy and other stores to find that my love of heavy bass was fading. I found myself leaning towards more clear and natural sounding headphones.
Today, I do have money and am looking to make a purchase really soon, but I don't know what.
I would prefer something more in the $125 range, but, if the difference in quality is big enough, I'm willing to go as high as $175. My general budget for things at the moment is tight enough, but I need a little something more out of my music-listening, more than my Sennheiser HD 202 II's can give me. Plus, I'm needing to slide into audio recording for a few projects, so more natural sounding ones would benefit that, at least I would assume. I'm no audiophile...yet. With that, the need to keep the headphone budget lower would be great as I need to also pick up a decent microphone, but still on the cheaper side.
So, Head-Fi, what would be good?
Also, if you know anything about audio-recording, pointing me in the right direction for that would be much appreciated.
I'm looking at:
