Location: At home, and mixing recordings on a board, outside with my phone (if the headphones require an amp, I can get a Fiio E5 or whatever cheap solution would more-less fit the budget)
Budget: 120 USD (Prefer to keep it under, but I'd like to see any recommendations really. )
Music: As mentioned before, for mixing recordings, so slightly flat is helpful, but I won't make it a deal breaker so long as the FR is reasonable. But I will be listening to music for leisure, includes bass heavy electronic and more full band type music.
Headphone 'specs' request:
- Full Sized circumaural phones (large drivers is a plus, won't get nitty gritty on those specs though)
- Closed cans
- detachable cable preferable.
- Good build quality.
- Size again, the bigger the headphones the better, I don't want my ears to hurt after extended use like my current cheapos do. clamping force is not a big problem if it will adjust over time.
I've looked at the Audio-Technica ATH-M50s, Shure SRH750DJ, Senn. HD 280 (and 380) Pro, and a few others. But need other suggestions.
