Hi there :)
At the moment I own the IEM Shure SE425 for 2 years now. I REALLY enjoy them for listenning to FLAC files, but it feels like my ears are bleeding when I use mp3 < 320kpbs...
So now, I'm looking for headphones, something more "fun" and less "analytical" than my Shure.
Since it will be (primarily) for home use and either connected to my PC or my FiiO E17, isolation and impedence are not (really) an issue here, but COMFORT is.
I listen to a wide range of music (Hip hop, roots reggae, rock, soul, classical / OST, electronic). My Shure are great for any voice/instrumental-based music, but as you can imagine, it falls short when it come to hip hop for example...
My budget is 200€ top (~250$, but bear in mind that some products are much more expensive here in Europe than in the US...)
After some researches on Internet, here is what I selected:
- Philips Fidelio L1
- Sennheiser HD 598
- Sennheiser HD 600
- Ultrasone HFI-780
- Audio-Technica ATH-PRO 700 MK2
- Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro
I'm leaning towards the L1, but I really can't make up my mind...
