After hours of research, I just purchased Sennheisers hd 25-1 ii. They came today and i quickly tried them out. Not what I was expecting. I read that they were a little bass heavy but I didnt let it bother me too much. However I felt that these cans dont have enough clarity for me- It seems as if instruments overpower the vocals. But the bass was phenomenal- nice and tight. I listen to mostly acoustic music so I guess these headphones aren't really for me. Plus the clamping force was a little too tight. My budget is around $300, and im looking for an around ear, closed back headphone that arent too hard to travel with. I'll most likely use them with my Sandisk Sansa Clip+ too. Any recommendations?
