I'm currently in the market for a set of portable headphones for around $200 mark.
In my portable rig currently, I'm using a set of SRH440's with a C421 amp. After using a set of HD600's at home for the past few months, I've found the SRH400 is way too fatiguing compared to the HD600, so I'm looking for something that doesn't have the piercing upper midrange that the 440 has.
My main contender currently is the HD25-II, since it seems very portable. I've thought about IEMs, but I don't really want to invest that kind of money in something that fragile.
I primarily listen to metal and Jpop on a day to day basis. Any other headphones you guys would recommend?
