Been searching now for nearly a week, every day all day, and have come up with a few that might work but, I am not convinced and there seems to be no end. The best might be to just decide, but before spending the cash thought I would ask for advice here.
I do video production. Nothing real big but I am getting into larger productions a few of which have already been seen by fairly large groups for which decent sound systems are required. Naturally, sound quality is important. I do own a set of studio monitors but am not able to use them due to my current living arrangement.
Please take into consideration that I live in Bolivia, South America. The only headphones I found, that might be decent, are the Shure srh440, 840, and 940. There is very little to choose from and testing them is very rarely an option. Also, a friend will be able to bring some down for me from the U.S. so, my limit to options is whatever I can find online.
What I am looking for:
-flat response, natural sound, good sound stage would be nice.
-comfortable. I won't need headphones everyday but the days I would will be very long.
-Durable. I take care of my stuff but still want to be using these for years to come without them falling apart.
-Price: $150 give or take. I know this isn't much. Will go higher if the price seems justified.
The headphones that keep coming up are the Beyerdynamic dt770 pro. If I got these it would probably be the 250Ohm along with an amp/dac. The amp would be apart from the price range mentioned above. I have read several times that the dt770 pro is bass heavy. Do I need to be concerned about this?
What are your thoughts? Options?
