Im looking to upgrade my Sennheiser HD555's for the purpose of daily use to and from work, i travel by train so thought i would switch to some closed cans with good sound isolation, and a few people i have talked to (who are DJ's however) have raved about these headphones.
Now im a bass lover, my main style of music i listen to is Drum n Bass and other electronic music, 90% of my music would be electronic and i find the HD555's produce quite good bass however i would like a bit more, and im afraid that downsizing in driver size from the HD555's to the HD-25-II's wont net me as deep or punchy bass.
The other option is HD650 which i 'imagine' is a heavily upgraded version of the 555's, however as they sound better id be more inclined to push them harder, and thus annoy more people on the train, which is what im trying to avoid!
My main sound source is my HTC One, with audio ranging from 128kbit streaming to FLAC audio files locally on the phones storage.
Also ive been reading about people switching the cable on the HD-25-1 II to the 650 cable and that it offers better midrange and bass responce, which is something i would definitely look into.
How do people find these headphones in terms of bass output? Will i be disappointed with the soundstage compared to the 555's ?
What other headphones could i look at in the similar price ranges with good bass responce ? im after quality.
Alternatively i could look at a FiiO portable amp, but i think upgrading the headphones will give me more what im looking for.
Thanks in advance :-)
