I want some new headphones, mostly for music but also for gaming and movies. I will be using them with a Fiio E7 (or maybe an E07K) when on the run and a Schiit Modi (eventually) when at home. I am 99% sure I want a closed headphone, as I prefer the noise isolation. My current headphones are Klipsch Image Ones. I really like the sound of them but they are a bit small for my tastes and I believe I can get better sound for the money.
My sound preferences are more focused on full, warm and richness of sound, but with decent clarity. I also prefer a lot of bass by audiophile standards, but I do not like rumbling or distortion in my bass. I use mostly 320kbps MP3 but some FLAC as well. I use Foobar2000 for music. I also use Breakaway Live (audio processing software).
My budget is $150 or so, but I will probably buy used. I am currently looking at the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pros, and the V-Moda Crossfade LP2. I can probably test some of these nearby but I'd like to have some ideas of what to look for first.
Rock, metal, post-hardcore, rap, dubstep/electro house, much more.
