Hey Headfier's,

 

I recently got a pair of Q701's for home use and have fallen in love with their sound.  Having read a bunch of reviews here, I was surprised at just how much I enjoy them for electronic music.  Although it did take some time to get used to the low end (I've only had closed cans previously), I can't get enough of the mids and high end detail these cans produce, especially with stereo synthy stuff. (sawtooth waveforms=drool)  

 

With that being said, I'm looking to see if I can find a pair of portables with a similar sound.  I'm sure I'll be able to find some contenders here with some research, but I thought I'd throw out the question incase anyone has had similar needs.

 

My only requirements are they must be phones and not IEMS.  Don't care if they are closed or open, large-ish or small, require an amp, looks are secondary! Wish I could say budget doesn't matter but I'd like to keep em under 500 or so, 300 area would be so much better though! :)

 

Any ideas?  

 

Thanks!
