In search of closed-back headphones for classical music

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

 

After reading numerous threads about the same topic, I am still clueless on what headphones to purchase.

 

The only pair of headphones I've ever owned are Sennheiser HD25-1 II.  I perceived them to produce detailed sounds and to have a neutral tone, and I liked that.

 

I'm looking for a pair of portable closed-back headphones that are suitable for all types of classical music.  I'm not looking for something super-lightweight, but they have to work well (not necessarily optimally) without an amp.  My budget is $800.

 

So

1. closed-back

2. portable (for use both with and without an amp)

3. suitable for classical music

4. $800 budget

 

 

Thanks in advance!
