Hello - I need some expert input / suggestions for purchasing a new pair of cans for use with FiiO E7 DAC mounted on FiiO E09K amplifier.
I've used Sennheiser HD 598 for the past year and half now, and while these provide very good comfort over extended use, the sound reproduction (esp. bass), IMO, is underwhelming. Plus, because of the open nature of this set, a lot of sounds leaks in and out, which gets tiring at times.
The headphones are mostly used to listen to Instrumental (Chopin, Royal Philharmonic etc.) tracks and deliver audio for movies.
I'm flexible on the budget but nothing like Stax or anything in that range; has to be less than $500.
I appreciate your help with this. Thanks.
