Hello, I'm in search of headphones somewhere in the price range from 0 - 200 dollar/euro. (I'm Dutch).
I mostly listen to Japanese music, bands like: The Kiddie, Nico touches the walls, LiSa, Fripside, Sid, Spyair, Miwa, One ok rock, Supercell, Yui, Nagi Yanagi, Mami Kawada, rookiez is punk'd and uverworld.
But I also listen to English bands like Muse, Dead by april, and anything that sounds good to my ears!
So I'm searching for headphones that will do great with all these types of music. Most instruments used are: guitar, piano, drum, bass, electronic, accoustic and vocals and a bit of techno ? (dead by april)
I'm looking for headphones that will make me feel like they're playing live infront/besides me. And I would appreciate if the bass weren't that present.
Or well, balanced headphones. I have had multiple headphones like the Bose AE2, sennheiser HD 205, Shure SRH750DJ and the Monster turbine pro earplugs. But they were all too bassy, except for the Bose AE2 it sounded very wonderful, but I sold it 'cause I heard Bose is overpriced and you could get much more for the same amount of money.
But I guess I do like a punchy bass, but it should only be present when the artist(s) originally wanted it to be.
I've already searched many threads but couldn't get any answers.
Is it true that the Audio-technica's ATH M50 has a lot of bass?
I'd like the perfect headphones for these genres of possible! Can anyone help me?
Edit: Also, a headphone that isolates music greatly, I don't wanna annoy people with my music and I don't wanna hear sounds around me when I'm trying to listen to mine on a low/medium volume.
Oh the demands.. quite sorry!
