I'm both a newbie in this whole headphone area and this forum, but it looks like I can get some help here.
I'm considering getting a TMA-1 Studio headphone because I like its design and the sound quality seems to be great. Recently a Young Guru edition has come along and I'm not sure which one to get.
What I'm looking for is an over-ear headphone (I have a Sol Republic Tracks HD which is on-ear, good quality but gets uncomfortable after having my ears squeezed for 2 hours) with a balanced sound.
Here is a set of criteria that I'm looking into:
Has to be over-ear that covers my ears but not on them. I have an old Panasonic RP-HTX7, looks amazing and very comfortable but the sound quality is not as good as the Tracks HD. Some cushioning on the headband would be nice as well.
I mostly listen to classical and some times R&B. I don't want to have the bass boosted too much to an extend that the booms are over the top. I suppose I'm looking for a more balanced output over the spectrum. Clarity is probably what I value the most.
I'll put it in my backpack often so some bendings are expected. I heard that the earlier TMA-1 Studio original suffers from earpads not glued securely. I hope it's fixed by now. And the YG edition uses a different material so it might solve the problem.
If someone could compare those two for me and provide me with some recommendations, or something I should consider that would be great.
