And would like the help from people that are knowledgeable in this department. Basically I got sucked in to the "Ooo, they look so dope & pretty! Must have ASAP! Surely the price point means they're gonna sound like Jesus himself is singing the songs to me through the speakers." hype of them.
Anyways, I gave them away to some poor unfortunate soul in desperate need of them awhile ago and basically have been mulling around my options trying to see what I should buy next. This time making sure to get something that will actually be accurate with different sounds, not just bass heavy music, and since my library is very expansive in the types and sounds I need something that will fit that. Don't get me wrong tho, I do need my bass still! Just not overpowered & more so how it was meant to be heard. I need the most accurate sound headphones can provide in which the maker of the song meant for you to hear it!
Here are the options I've come up with along the time in between me giving away my Beats and really researching within my budget range:
These are the options I've seen most people talk about on forums and through my own research that I THINK would fit what I'm looking for:
AIAIAI TMA-1 DJ
Aiaiai TMA-1 Studio
AIAIAI TMA-1 Studio Engineered by Young Guru
AKG K 272 HD
Audio-Technica ATH-M50/Audio-Technica ATH-M50WH
Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 250ohms
Bowers & Wilkins P3
Harman Kardon CL
Sennheiser HD 380 Pro
Sennheiser HD 558
Sennheiser HD 598
If you see any on this list I should definitely eliminate and not even consider, please tell me! And if you know of any I should be looking at that I'm missing from this list (within that $100-200, maybe $250 tops price range) then tell me as well and I'll look into them.
Also, if you can recommend any amplifiers/DAC, portable (can they be portable?) or not (like the Aune T1 6992 & the Fiio E10).
Basically though, if I wanted right now I could go ahead and just get the Bowers & Wilkins P7's that just came out (or will come out soon right?) since they basically fit everything I need. But I don't want to do that same thing I did with the Beats and go where the hype is at, just to throw money away. I mean, I could do it all I want but that doesn't benefit me in the long run when it comes to my music listening. And trust me, I listen to a lot of music and want it to be the most enjoyable sound I can get!
