Hello by the way.. this is my first post :)
I currently have a pair of Sony MDR-V700 headphones. I bought them because they had good sound isolation in noisy environments (was a DJ), but I bought them just because at the time, that's what other DJs used. They sound OK, but lack detail, and seem a bit crude at the top end, and they're not too comfortable for long listening sessions... they also don't play nice with my FLACs of classical music.
About me: I'm probably someone who will annoy you in my musical tastes... because I like everything. I listen to a great deal of classical music and opera, but also love sub-bass heavy dance music (yes.. including dubstep.. don't shoot me) and more conventional rock/bands... in short... pretty much the whole spectrum.
I drive my phones from my computer using a Asus Xonar Essence sound card, so very high impedence phones are not something I'm interested in.
I have compiled a shortlist from researching various phones, but I have nowhere near me where I can audition headphones :(
Beyerdynamic DT770Pro (32 Ohm)
Denon AH-D2000 (hard to find new now)
Basically I want feedback from those who own these headphones.
I like an open transparent sound, wide soundstage with uncoloured mid-range.... I hate "cuppy" or "boxed" mid range!!!
However, I need sub-bass to be prominent when required... although not at the expense of mid range.
Sounds like a tall order perhaps, but any feedback on my shortlist would be appreciated.
