I currently run some Senn PX 200 IIi headphones directly off my iPhone for work. I'm looking for something with a little better overall sound quality, especially deeper bass. I will note however, that I want neutral bass, just more extension. I don't have the luxury of an office so two caveats. 1) I don't want anything huge for work. I don't want to look like an airport employee and 2) I had been eyeing sealed phones due to the potential for sound leakage.
Budget is up to $350 but if I need an amp, I was going to pick up a Schiit Magni, so if an amp will be required, the budget for the phone would fall.
I should add that I was looking at the HD 598 but am worried that it is an open can. I don't need isolation, I'm worried about bugging other people. Also have looked at Ultrasone and Audiotechnica
