Want to get Fullsize headphones..tested AKG 240s but it lacks bass...any recommendations around that price range $150

Hi!

I have been using in ear mostly but I miss the openness of full size cans. A coworker has the AKG 240s and while semi open, his test of loud volume proved to me that I can handle that small leak since this is a computer tech support area so there is always people on phones and people typing so that small sound leak is not a problem.

My main issue with the 240 is the lack of bass...or maybe it needs some amp to push it.
I tried with my Note 2 and computer.

Now, I like bass but not bloaty stuff, quality bass but not lacking ..so yeah I am picky.
Any recommendations? :)
A seller around here has the Shure 840 for $100 if that is a good one.


Regards

That is a great price for a headphone with a good reputation for audio quality.

Brand new SRH840s cost $200.
