Could use some recommendations for portable headphones in the $80-$120 USD range for a wide variety of music

post #1 of 2

Hello all!  I've been lurking for a while now trying to soak up as much information as possible but at times it is just overwhelming.  I am in the market for some headphones that are more portable than my current ones, most likely on-ear that are good for most genres of music.  I'm looking in the 80-120 USD range since I am also looking into another pair of IEMs. I would prefer the cable to be single-sided and removable but I can make allowances.

 

My source:

Sony NWZ-e465 + Fiio E11

 

Current gear:

Koss ProDj100

Monoprice 8323

Phonak PFE

Astrotec AM-90

 

Musical tastes: varied

Chvrches

Haim

New Order

Nine Inch Nails

Miles Davis

Charlie Parker

Al Green

Stevie Wonder

The Knife

Flying Lotus

Crystal Castles

Thievery Corporation

 

The Koss and Phonaks are my favorites and I would like the recommendations to be similar in sound but maybe with a bit more bass punch.

 

The monoprice make my ears hot and get uncomfortable over time but have great sound for the price.  The Astrotecs seem more cold and flat than what I was expecting.  I purchased them after my Phonaks primarily for gym use.  

 

For the IEM I'm considering the MEElectronics A161p (notice a BA trend?)

 

For cans I'm looking into: UE 4000, Noontec Zoro HD, Phiaton MS 400 (even though seem to be a little larger than what I'm after, Phiaton MS430 (not many reviews)

 

any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!
