Said friend is offering to buy me a new pair of headphones so that my ears don't hurt so they need to be closed and and but heavy on the bass. I would ask for a pair of AD700s but those are open. The price limit is $160 and sadly Sennheiser is not a option as those tend have thin cords and I have a kitten that loves to attack cords.
I can usually tell the subtle differences between codecs and would like something that is entry audiophile level. That being said I would prefer the bass to be mild, weak or at the very least not over power the other sounds. I also wear glasses and do not have a amp (nor plan on getting one).
Looking at the ATH-M50 but would love recommendations from everyone.
