Hi, I need a good headphone exclusively for anime around the $80-145 range. Currently, unless I can find a better offering from Sony, I intend to get the Grado SR-80i.
It needs to play vocals really well, with decent mids. I'm not so big about bass, but I do listen almost exclusively to upbeat, fluffy music like these:
Been recommended the SR-80i by my fansubbing colleagues as it is an easy 'all size fits all' for entry level audiophiles, but considering Sony's range as well. Unless really necessary, think I will stick to these brands for now, though I'm more inclined towards sony, just that their massive range has me in a daze and I have no idea what to get. I kinda like Sony's aesthetics (like the simplistic feel), as well as because sony products have lasted quite long for me.
I just want something to work great indoors right out of the pack without mods, in quite a quiet environment. Actually prefer something WITHOUT noise cancelling because I need to hear my housemates scream, though that isn't really that big a deciding factor for me. Not yet an audiophile but that's set to change. Just don't wanna mod anything right now.
For anyone feeling extra helpful, do my shopping for me : http://www.stereo.com.sg/store/nav.php?cPath=208_269
Anything round 100-150 of my dollars will work.
Any help appreciated, thanks much.
