i was quite pleased with my HD212pro til now, but sadly it broke lately. First i bought the PortaPro hoping that maybe it was enough for my needs. But after two weeks or so i was missing some differentiation in the mids etc, i realised the limits of this phone. I then tried the Sony XB-700 as i am more on the "aggressive music" side (electronica mainly). But while i liked the Bass power for electronica and liked the better resolution, diffentiation etc, i found the (sub-)bass too dominant in everything else, from normal pop/rock music to movies/games. The constant subwoofer-like booming was too fatiguing and a litte bit annoying after a while. Also i thought the Kicks were a bit "too late", as if the phone were too slow or something.
So i'm looking for a phone that is able to produce an aggressive, shattering, precise bass where the song obviously emphasizes it without overemphasizing the sub-bass in every song. Does something like this even exist in the sub-200$ class? The new version of the M50 doesn't seem to be the right choice as it is less bassy from what i read here.
