Next headphone for me to get?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi all, as of today i sold packaged and sent off my sennheiser momentum (got £210 for them on ebay) and now i want a different headphone, but now i am stumped on what to get and what brand's to look at! i am currently using beats (i know..just till i get some proper headphones, i use these for public transport use etc) i currently have a fiio e17 amp/dac and was thinking about the hd 650's, new beats studio 2013 or beats mixr i know the sound quality may not be the best but at the moment these are the only 3 headphones i can think of i have a budget of upto £310 (price of the hd 650) any suggestions to help my cause would be great.

 

some info to let you help me better:

source:youtube,deezer, CD's

amp:fiio e17

previous headphones owned:sennheiser momentum, beats solo HD, skullcandy hesh 2.0

favourite artists/music genres: Pop,dance,EDM,R&B,Dubstep,some rock music

favourite artists:Chase and status, eminem, paramore, girls aloud, example, cheryl, david guetta/calvin harris/hardwell/steve aoki etc

 

i would say i like bass as i love feeling the thump when the bass is amplified on my fiio on max volume to some EDM and chase and status songs etc but i can cope if the bass is around the same or a bit less than what the momentum offers.

looks like i now need to decide between v-moda m100 and the sennheiser hd 650. i also play games on laptop so the built in mic is useful on the m100. but i am worried if i get them i will kick myself for potentially missing out on the "better sound quaity and soundstage" on the 650's. and with the m100 i can keep my fiio e17, as with the hd 650's i would need to buy an aditional fiio e09k amp since they are 300 ohms

how can you compare an open and close design phone?

i don't really know as i have never owned/used an open design headphone, i don't know what they are like and am scared if i buy it i will hate it

open design = sound leakage, suitable for home use (provided no one at home complains about sound leakage), soundstage is better than close design

close design = portable, isolation, can be used in public places.
