No. The MDR-1R seems to be decent for the price for home use. Need other suggestions. Plus in my country they're €189,-

I went back and reread your original post. It looks like we kinda got off-topic real quick, so I can see how you don't have any answer yet. So...

They need to be really engaging aswell. I will be using them at home.

 

 

There are many many many better options out there for home use than the 1R. It excels in the portable market. I wouldn't use it for home use. Can you do an open can?

No. Closed or semi-open.

How do they sound with 128 kbps music?

The 1R, UE 6000, M100, Momentum... all of these are great options for portable applications. They excel greatly in that function. I don't think I'd recommend them for home use. You said you liked the SRH840, a great neutral home use can, but you'd like to see more bass? Can you confirm that's what you were saying. If that's true, have you looked at the A900X?

Yes. I liked the Shure SRH840 a lot, unfortanetly it had way too less bass for my tastes. They were very engaging for me, definitely something that my AKG K540 lacks.T They had a bit less clarity though in the vocals. The A900x is waaaaaaaaaaaay out of my budget in my country.

That's so unfortunate because it's dirty cheap over here in the States right now and it keeps dropping.

 

So the SRH840, a very neutral can, didn't have enough bass by a long shot. So you're looking for something fairly warm and thumpy. Alright, how about my two favorite sub-$100 closed cans, the Creative Aurvana Live and the Sony MDR-V6 (or MDR-7506)?

How does the CAL compare to the SRH840?
