Things I'd prefer:
Fantastic looks. IE those Onkyo that are coming out, V-Moda Crossfades, Grados, you know if it looks good.
No amp needed would be nice.
Detachable cables are a plus.
Inline remotes are nice. I'm lazy like that.
It to be able to last the apocalypse... I'm somehow a destroyer of electronics. Suffice to say, build quality must be at least decent.
Also it'd be great if they aren't super uncomfortable, IE the tightest fit known to man. Also I have a small to medium head and ears, I tried B&W (forgot model but the pads went around my ears) and they were good but the isolation was eh and I had to push them towards my ears as it was big.
Great sound with any genre of music.
Beautiful highs with no screech.
Good, punchy complex bass that doesn't overwhelm the song. (Not a bass head, though bass can't be too lacking.)
So I guess my priority: mids to highs to lows.
Thanks in advance for reading this!
I'm currently looking at:
The Onkyo headphones that release this December.
Audio Technica ATH-M50.
Beats. JK. Gotcha!
A Magnum driver headphone. Though I'm not adept with this.
