KRK KNS 8400 wasn't me, what to choose instead ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey head-fi.

 

So i recently bought the KRK KNS 8400 headphones, and nearly at first listen, i got the feeling "these doesn't fit me" - balance wise. There was not enough bass, and the highs was in some occasions a "tsst". Tomorrow or someday soon, i'll be returning them to the store where i bought them. But before i do, i need to find another pair the will fit me better.

 

As mentioned i don't like when the highs "cracks/breaks" -whatever you wanna call it. So that will be one of the focus-points in the new headset. Next i would like some more bass, not so much in the lows, but like the XB-500.

 

I mainly listen to rock; Aerosmith, Muse, Egypt Central and Story of the Year. But also pop and house.

 

Anyone have a suggestion, that will fit my taste in music?

 

-the headphones must be portable, as i won't be using amp, and with a maximum price at roughly 200 dollars.

 

EDIT: 

The comfort is also an important factor, therefor the headset must be over-ear.

Forgot to mention that comfort is important, which means, for my concern, that it has to be over-ear.

 

But thanks for the input, iv'e also considered the ATH-M50!
