Hey all! Here is the details of what I would like if anyone can help!
Budget - Around $150 AUD ($134 USD) + Postage if it's not ridiculous
Source - Computer (Asus Xonar DGX Sound Card) + Phone
Requirements for Isolation - Good isolation is preferred however not absolutely necessary.
Preferred Type of Headphone - Full-sized headphones
Preferred tonal balance - I do not think I am a full on basshead but I do love good bass immersion and punch. I also like vocal clarity on things like vocal trance and house music. I think I like a slight V-shape sound which is similar to my current ATH-ES7's.
Past headphones - I currently own a pair of ATH-ES7's and I love them. The only problem I have is that they hurt my ears after awhile and that the cable isn't long enough for me to in my computer setup (about half a metre short). I've also borrowed my friend's ATH-M50's for a few days and whilst I think they are good I'm not sure if they are worth the $140 AUD it costs for me here and if there is anything else better nowadays.
Preferred Music - House/Vocal Trance/Trance/EDM/Rock/Pop/Instrumentals (Soundtrack OSTs and things like Two Steps From Hell and Hans Zimmer) I also game quite often.
Location - Australia and in an area where I really cannot trial or demo any headphones other than Sennheisers which is frustrating as they are almost all overpriced here.
Any help would be fantastic as I would like to purchase them as soon as possible to get them in time for Christmas.
If anyone could guide me in a direction that could possibly help please don't be afraid to post as I welcome all opinions and information.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
