Last year, completely neglecting any proper research, I got a pair of Beats Pros. Having had them for a while, apart from the solid construction, they're uncomfortable and the bass is...I'm sure you know the rest.
Having got my senses together, I've looked around for a better, lighter set of cans and I've found that a pair of K550s on amazon.co.uk is reduced to £129.95. Now, could anyone tell me if they're comfortably light and how they sound in comparison to other headphones for <£250?
I've looked at the reviews here, and while the reviews are ~4 stars overall, for £129.95, are they much better than, for example, Grado SR80is?
Sorry if it seems like I've not been bothered to look at other searches, but I have, and have seen what others are saying, such as not enough bass, but others saying it's enough, etc.
I'd prefer closed or semi-closed, open would just cause everyone around me to wish me dead, and I'd like a nice soundstage that isn't too neutral. I'll be using it to listen to anything from EDM such as Avicii to jazz rock like Steely Dan to rock like Arctic Monkeys, so a quite but not overly colourful soundstage would be nice. Looks don't really matter, but nothing too ugly.
Also, I'd rather not have to buy a portable amp, but it won't be end of the world if I have to. I don't mind buying out of production, but I'm not really an expert on older (or newer,really) headphones. As of now it looks like K550s are the way to go, especially at half price, but if you could find me a good pair for under £250, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
