Hello, I have been on Head-Fi for a long time but never bothered to make an account until today.
I own a Shure 440 and needless to say, it is amazing (At least for me).
Soon, I am going to buy a new pair of hopefully better sounding head phones.
However, I do not know what to go for next... I wish that the experts here can recommend a good headphone for me.
I mainly listen to music, but occasionally do some gaming. I only listen to music at home and in the car.
Music Genre: K-POP, POP, Jazz, Rock, String Instruments... (An all-rounder would be good)
I focus on the rich sounding, female vocal, clarity, detail & soundstage...... Bass? Not that much.
Sound Isolation: I usually listen to music at my living room which is a little noisy, so sound isolation does matter to some degree.
Sound Leakage: Equally important with isolation but as nobody in my family cares, doesn't matter too much.
Comfort: The Shure440 hurts my ear after 1 hour because my ear can touch the inside of the cans (840's pads would help) and my ears would start sweating.
A headphone with better comfort would obviously help..
Soundstage: The main reason I want a new headphone as the Shure 440's soundstage is rather narrow, as if all the music are coming from one location. I want a good headphone with a wide soundstage.
Price > Sound Quality > Comfort > Build Quality > Portability
Soundstage > Detail/Clarity > Vocal > Bass
And to members that live in Malaysia, hopefully the recommended headphone can be tested at Jaben so I can listen to it before buying it.
Anyone can recommend a headphone for me?
