Budget (<$150) headphone options with lovely harmonic distortion. Something that doesn't really strong musicality or accuracy as reference headphones but delivers that nice "frittery" laid back enjoyable sound? I noticed a lot of the flaships have strong euphonic qualities, but what about those of us who can't spend $500+ on a pair of cans? After days of lurking I can't find anything.
Ideally a headphone like this will compensate for the heavier harmonic qualities with a strong soundstage good transperency.
I think this "euphonic" quality is what created cult followings of the Phillips HP 170 here quite some time back.
