As the title says. I currently have the Creative Aurvana Live! and am looking to upgrade. I listen to a lot of rock/pop/death metal so I guess something fun.
I like the CAL!'s sound signature so I don't want a really flat response. I wanna be able to play it with FPS games so an all-rounder is what I'm looking for.
My budget is $250 ($300 if the difference is night/day) and I'll be playing on my ipod a lot so something with high sensitivity/low impedance would be best (basically unamped).
As far as portability goes, I don't expect to bike with these so that's not a problem. I do have problems with noise at home so some cancellation would be nice but it's not a deal-breaker.
So far I've looked at:
Sennheiser Momentum (above budget, unfortunately)
Focal Spirit One
Denon D2000 (Really wanted these but can't find these for $250)
Denon D600 (Also above budget)
Beyerdynamic DT770 (32 ohm)
