I am looking for a good pair of headphones for under 1500$ (source and amplification will be chosen accordingly later on) which will answer the best the following requirements:
(At the moment I am considering the HD800, but didn't listen to them.....yet)
*I listen to Classical music (Baroque - present composers) almost exclusively with a bit of jazz.
-Balanced all over the spectrum
-Neutral and transparent
-As detailed as possible
-Clean but pleasant treble
-Tight bass with good impact. Not blown\slow\exaggerated, but precise with full body (After all, it is the most important register for the harmonies)
-Liquid and vibrant, yet not forwarded, midrange. Most of the musical I listen to is instrumental.
-Comfortable. My head size is quite average, and I don't want the headphones to press my head\ears.
-Won't require amplification\source which will cost another few grands. (I have a budget for B22 and Buffalo DAC atm)
Thanks in advance :)
