I've been researching the interwebs alot (often coming back round to this forum) for a good set of over-ear headphones that have a strong bass end that doesn't comprimise the middle and higher frequencies.
I've read through a few of the similar threads 'Best Dubstep Headphones under $200' etc. but I'm yet to come to a conclusion, it would seem one headphone cannot triumph another completely. And I have no idea where I can go to test them out for myself, as none of my local shops stock the headphones I'm looking at (to my knowledge).
From my 'research' I'm currently looking at a few headphones;
ATH M50 £133.99
Ultrasone PRO750 - £221 Over budget but may get away with it...
Ultrasone HFI 780 £149
They must be closed as I'll be listening to them at school on the train etc. and don't want to be getting funny looks from people who can hear the odd sounds of Dubstep leaking through. I'll be listening to them through my Laptop and Samsung Galaxy SII (Android Phone). It is to my understanding that I would benefit from an amp, considering the size of the devices doesn't allow for a large, high quality sound card or whatever. As my family isn't the most well off, I have little lee-way for going over £200... so I can't be splashing out on great headphones if i cant afford an amp that will actually make them sound worth the money.
I have no idea if one of the cheaper Fiio amps would work or not, I was looking at the Fiio E7 on Amazon for £60 which allows me £140 for headphones, which may work, with the above listed headphones being close to that figure.
My reason for upgrading;
I currently own a pair of Sennheiser CX-870 which are a brilliant pair of in-ears with a respectable punchy bass, however I lost the small buds and cannot for the life of me find replacements online, and the medium size falls out of my ear alot even when walking! They're also somewhat uncomfortable to have in your ear. I decided I'd rather have over-ear headphones so I dont have to put up with them not fitting my ear canal and falling out etc. and the larger driver meaning I get better over-all sound quality (theoretically).
I'll end this here before it turns into an Essay, in-fact, I think I've written shorter Essays -.-
I'm sure I can provide any extra info you may need that I may have missed, hope you can narrow my selection and advise me on the whole amp situation. Thanks! :)
