hi, im a newb oh headphones, the best i have currently is monster turbine iem and it got tiring really fast. hate how the bass feels overwhelms all the others
im currently in the market for a replacement, on ear / over ear is preffered, and im going to use it 99% on mobile gadgets like ipad, note2 and iphone 4.
my criteria is as follow:
1) i dont understand much about tonal balance and all, all i want is just a headphone that sounds nice and not overwhelming
2) it can be driven without an amp ( better with an amp is okay, as long as the amp is not a must)
3) clarity, good bass but not overwhelming
4) budget is $350 ish, don't care much about sound isolation, i'm indifferent between open cans or closed cans
currently im leaning toward
2) phillips fidelio L1
3) sennheiser momentum
4) vmoda M80
im living in indonesia so trying these thing is out of the question. im going to buy blind here, no tries no return.
a friend is going to buy the cans from the US
