Ok so I really like the sound signature,the over all specification & simple construction of the superlux 668B's ( £35 pounds ) . Their sound reproduction is relatively uncolored, thus their a non fatiguing listening experience .They are semi open so I don't feel too disconnected from the environment. And they are very conformable and lightweight .
I listen mainly to electronic styles of music and the superlux reproduce the sounds of any sampled drums etc accurately . Though the bass isn't huge it sounds well positioned and not dominating any of the other spectrum .It could be argued that the sound stage is small with the superlux (when compared to some other headphones) .But the sound stage, or the space that the music resides in, is essentially in the music .Thus again a neutral sounding headphone should reproduce that stage more faithfully than a headphone that users a design to amplify that feeling of space .
I've just bought some soundmagic hp200's .And although I can appreciate the fine build quality of these headphones, I find them to be overly reproducing the low frequencies ,which is fine if your a bass head, but I prefer a nice linear and flat response .
So can anybody think of a open headphone that is well known to be neutral ,can be driven from a sansa clip and will stay secure on the head .i.e - no slip when nodding,shaking head etc ?.
Maybe the superlux 668B's are the best I can get for my needs ?.
