I'm looking for some to-go portables that I can use pretty conveniently on an iPhone and an iPod, that I can toss around without worry. I 've a pair of Philips Downtown, but they're way too mid-centric for me. They sound artificial even. Not enough bass either.
I'm looking for something warmer, a bit bass-heavy. I like my mids to be accurate, but a slight recession is alright. I like treble around neutral levels, but slightly laid back to slightly sparkly is fine as well. Must be closed-back.
I listen to just about everything, however I find myself listening to calmer electronic music, jazz, and alternative rock the most.
My budget CAN go up to $200, but I would highly prefer to pay much less than that. I'm kinda looking in the under $50 range, but if there's something that would suit me a lot better that's above the price, I'd consider it for sure.
I am willing to use sites like Focalprice, DX, etc, if need be.
I've been looking at..
Philips/O'Neil 'The Stretch' (There's a used pair on eBay for $20)
Philips Citiscape Metro
(enough with the Philips..)
Klipsch Image ONE (There's a used pair on eBay for $30. Fake maybe? I don't know)
House of Marley Exodus (Not sure if this has my wanted signature or not)
What do you think?
