Looking for a pair of open headphones, £100-150

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello HeadFi!

I'm planning on getting a new pair of headphones and am looking for something open this time. Since I list to a various genres of music, I've been thinking of something fairly neutral. Broadly speaking, I listen to,

Orchestral soundtracks
Ambient music
Various electronic genres - mainly related to electro and funk
Instrumental solos - namely guitar and piano
Hip hop, tip hop (mostly instrumental)

I currently have a Xonar DGX sound card, which has a small amp built in. I don't think I have to money to be replacing that anytime soon, so something fairly easy to drive would be nice. Budget as I said in the title is around £100-150, I'll be purchasing them from Amazon UK.

I've been currently looking at the Sony MDR-MA900, largely due to the wide soundstage and the comfortable design. I am looking for alternatives however, since I'm sure there's a lot of cans out there that I've never even heard of.

Thanks in advance. smily_headphones1.gif
