Hello everyone. This is my first post on the forum.
I am quite picky about sound and have tried many headphones.
I have tried Sennheiser headphones, I dont remember model but I bought them for £100. Sound was clear but too low volume. I suppose those were not made for mp3 players. Cable was broken and I had no way to fix them.
Then I used Bose EO. I think those had the best sound. I loved the sound and the bass. However, I was disappointed about build quality. Speakers started turning 360 degrees and eventually, they broke in half. (I broke cable as well) What a disappointment for such a great sound quality.
My next choice was Beats By Dr Dre Mixr. I bought them because of the metal body and disconnectable cable. (Is there even such word "disconnectable"?). Sound - well, not the best. Hurt my ears as hell. Then I got a chance to exchange Mixr for Beats Pro. Sound - "Are you kidding me? £350 for that???". Body quality - great.
I sold them after 1 week of using, because I felt shame for the sound with cost of £350.
I hope this is enough to form a picture about me. Obviously, any sound "freak" would not come even close to Beats (Sadly, I did). And, I do not do research before buying somethin - just trust the price.
I hope that someone can suggest me great headphones for Metal/Alternative/Core music with clear sound and deep bass. Price - I guess up to £250. But you can suggest something at a higher price.
I wish a headphones with the body quality of Beats Pro and Sound quality of Bose OE. Ability to change cable is crucial.
