After all the headphones I've bought I'm only keeping two pairs - V-Moda M -100 & Sennheiser HD650. The V-Moda's wouldn't suit your musical tastes I'm afraid as they're more of a "fun" sound. The HD650's on the other hand are superb and ideal for your preferred genres. Although they're a 300 Ohm design my E18 has no trouble driving them on low gain. Can they get better with better amplification? You bet! The E18 does a grand job though.
Those Sennheiser HD650 are open back, so therefore they would leak sound, am I correct? I will be using these in my work environment sitting at a desk with people passing by and at home.. I know they would fit in at home. Also, these won't be good for on the go? Correct?
Thanks for that feedback..
