So having grown tired of having to continuously replace sub standard earphones, as the title states I'm looking to purchase my first serious pair of headphones. I have researched online extensively, this site in particular, and while I'm a lot more clued up than before I think I need some direct advice to help me decide on a pair.
- Budget isn't really an issue, prepared to pay for top quality, say £200 or under ($325?)
- Preferably closed
- Portable and comfortable for use outside the house
- Good for electronic music, mainly house, though I do listen to most genres
Also bear in mind they'd mainly be used in conjunction with my iPhone, particularly when out and about.
In researching as expected I've seen some common pairs suggested, mainly the Ultrasone HFI 580s and Beyer DT770s, while as far as I know the Audio Technica ATH-M50s and Sennheiser HD 25s have good reputations. Are the ones I'm looking for amongst these, or should I be looking elsewhere?
Your help would be much appreciated. :-)
