Well. This is headphone pair #3 for me (V-Moda LP2) and the sound quality on the highs just is not cutting it for me, while everything else is generally. I could ramble on and on like I did in my previous post or just cut it short, which is probably best.
I need something that comfort wise is sound and can last long durations of time.
circumaural (I beleive? Whichever the oval ones are), closed, around-the-ear
Bass with a boom, I like to feel the punch of the bass but not something thats going to gobble up the rest of my sound. (Uptowns had to little bass, LP2's were perfect in that area)
Highs. The highs on the uptowns (along with the sound stage) were amazing and perfect but the bass lacked to much. Bass > Highs > Mids
Ease of Drive. They need to be able to be driven by an easy source (Able to drive the LP2's from my source but the Uptowns took to much.)
Mids. I'd like them to still be present and sound good but not as important as the highs and lows.
200 Dollar budget, possibly 250 as a strech but 200 for Amp/DAC + Headphones (If a Amp/DAC is needed.)
Genres: EDM (Trance. Dub. House. Whatever really in this area). Rock/Alt (Like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Matchbox 20, and some newer stuff). Rap. Etc etc just the general type of stuff I guess.
Edit: Also a detectable cable would be a plus.
