I'm new here and looking for a recommendation for open, around-the-ear headphones. Here's some background:
I have an audioengine D1 as my desktop DA / amp. I have a set of Sennheiser HD-380 pros that I love, but when I'm wearing them for work, because they're so closed, I have missed the phone ringing or people coming into my office! I'm looking for a very similar sound signature to the HD-380, but open so I can hear other things, and easy to drive from the audioengine D1.
I really like low end, and listen to a lot of rock and funk (jamiroquai,
I have a set of HD-600s and they're very accurate but not "fun" to listen to. I used these as reference headphones in my recording studio, but I've since closed the studio and am actually looking to sell them to fund the purchase of the open set I'll be using at work going forward.
