Hello, I currently have the CAL! love them despite the highs being a bit too sibilant and bass being a bit wooly but nothing an EQ can help with, I'm looking at upgrading, mainly home use so Semi open, Full Open or Closed, they are all fine!
But here is the problem, the way my jaw bone and neck is, very few headphones actually seal on me, let me give you what I have already tried:
- CAL!, these fit fine, though if I tilt my head to the right the left cup doesn't seal.
- DT770, they are just a joke, I have to raise my shoulders and push the cups in to get a seal. So this rules out the DT990 and other large open headphones ):
- UE6000, even though they look like they have small cups, they are just slightly longer than the CAL! so on my left ear, they don't seal unless I tilt my head to the left.
- (Not headphones really but still apply) Steelseries Siberia v2, same as UE6000 just worse and happens on both sides.
So I have a list of headphones I should look into, but living in London, I cannot just go to a shop and try any of these headphones out as there is not any shops that have them on show and I don't think Amazon will take too kindly to me refunding headphones each week.
What do you Head Fi'ers recommend me?
Music: From DnB to Trance to Rock to Hip Hop, the whole spectrum
Sound: CAL! sound with a tad more sub bass and less sibilant sounding, found the DT770 horrible mids, UE6000 to be good
I think that with my requirements as well as sound signature taste, finding any headphone is going to be hard for me.
Here is an drawing that may help, though I doubt it,
