Hi. Any advice or recommendations on this would be greatly appreciated.
To make this easier to read I'll organize my post into bullet-points...
1)-I plan on using whatever headphones I purchase for listening to music directly from a HP g7-1338dx laptop, un-amped.
2)-Most of my music is 320kbps. I usually don't get anything lower than 192kbps. Everything is mp3, I don't have FLAC files.
3)-I listen for long periods of time (5hrs is common). So ear fatigue from "intense sound" is an issue. I would prefer uncomfortable phones over phones that fatigue your ears with sound.
4)-I have some v-moda in-ear buds (not sure which model, they're not made anymore. They were ~$85 five years ago.) And I find them to be too bass-heavy.
5)-The music I would listen to would be Deep house/progressive house. Songs with deep, dark "rolling" bass. (I'll include some links to examples of what I'm trying to describe.)
6)-When I say electronic music, people tend to assume I mean hyperactive dance music where all that matters is a thumping beat. That's not the case.
7)-As i said, v-moda earbuds were too bass-oriented for me. I want bass, but I want it to be a sensible amount. Kind of like Goldilocks and the three bears.
8)-These links below are to the type of stuff I listen to. I emphasized "deep, dark rolling bass" because I feel that a bass-heavy headphone would be too intense. Yes, I realize they're Youtube and poor quality.
9)-I was thinking either Grado SR80i or ATH-M50. Would one of these be better than the other? Or perhaps could anyone recommend something else for this type of music?
Thanks. And I apologize for the huge wall of text. I wanted to include all the factors that I could.
