Long time watcher, finally posting. I've had some good headphones over the years and a couple of clunkers. After making a mistake buying the Marshall Majors I need a new pair of phones to use with my iphone and ipad. I listen to rock, classic rock, blues, jazz and other fun noisy things. I have been to the Apple store to try different phones, guitar center and a couple of places. I dig the CL's, they sound and fit good( I have a big melon). Is there anything else in the $200 range I should be aware of? I tried some others, the V-80's were good but too small, the amperiors were way cool, bit pricey...didn't like the fit of most other consumer phones. Yuck on the beats, they didn't fit or sound good. The B&W's were very cool but didn't fit as well as I would have liked
Price is quite flexible, also...years ago I lost part of my hearing at a Van Halen concert...oh the 80's! The outcome of that is anything with piercing highs or overly trebley sound hurts my ears. I like a clear but slightly warm sound...anything too bright just fatigues my ear.
I've read through a ton of posts on here that have led me to a phone or two, but I just need to know all the variables before I plop down some more money.
I'm in Saint Louis, MO so if you know of any places to go around here to demo that would be great!
