I have been using senn hd280 and ety mc3 for a couple years and I have finally saved up enough to upgrade. I love the etys over the ibuds, but I know I'm missing out on music. I've never heard any better headphones than what I have, thought I was a. Bass head so I listened to beats and other BB stuff but they didn't do it for me, which is why I'm here.
What I want:
- Non fatiguing sound of etymotic mc3 with a lot more bass in closed cans to use in the library.
- Needs to be on amazon prime.
- I want to buy 2 cans and return the one I like less.
- I listen to either classical podcasts or EDM Gareth emery, tiesto or hardwell podcasts from my MacBook while I study.
- Sometimes I listen to lossless music but not often.
- I'll use them on the go from my ip5 as well, then I'll listen to rap, r&b, indie and soft rock.
I have a fiio e6 and have decided to get an e12. I will more than likely be getting GR07 bass edition's for working out. I'll keep the etys for the amazing isolation.
So I need some cans that sound good and have very good bass quantity and quality - in fact I can't get enough bass, but not at the cost of clarity. I like what people say the he-400 and senn hd600 sound like warm, bassy, detailed, fast, but I need closed cans.
I don't need to spend 3-400 but I will for good cans that will last me for the next several years of studying. Eventually I'll get he-4/500's with a proper amp for home but now I need study phones.
I've been looking at:
- vmoda m100
- senn momentum
- ultrasone 580
- ultrasone dj1
- Sony xb-500
- mad dogs
- denon d600
What two should I get?
