Please excuse my limited knowledge. I may say some things wrong.
I'm most concerned with balance and good tone across the full spectrum. If I want extra of anything I can use an EQ.
I mostly listen to indie rock (Ryan Adams, etc), classic folk rock(Neil Young, Mark Knopfler), and some modern electronic rock (Foster the People, etc)
But I also like classical piano and violin.
I have a limited budget and need one good pair of over the ear cans. I think I'm deciding between the following three:
KRK- KNS-8400 (A little more $$$ than I wanted to spend)
Phillips Uptown (Concerned about crappy cord and too much bass?)
Sennheiser HD280pro (Good reviews if you go searching but I don't read many recommendations for them in forums like this)
Are the KNS-8400s worth the extra money?
I have big ears. Are any of these going to be a problem? I know the HD280s have big cups.
Thanks for your opinions.
