Best second pair for new audiophile.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi. About a year and a half ago I got my first real pair of headphones, the sennheiser hd 25-2. Love them. Use them for listening to iPod, ipad movies and tv shows and running my electric guitar through irig hd ipad amp.

I would like a second pair for:
Excercise. Running an cycling in mild to snowy or drizzly weather. The sennheisers are not for this. Probably a sport or earbud style.

Driving in a noisy truck or on a boat. A change of pace from the sennheisers. Something that sounds different. Compact travel.

Also I just want a second pair. Something with too notch audio, good for sports and portable.

What are some I should check out? I like to listen very loud. But very clear and good quality. I listen to mostly black metal which has a huge amount of midrange and not much bass. I also like industrial which does have more of a driving bass beat.

Do I need to tell you not to screw up your hearing? Well, you might want to get something open for sports (it's not nice to get hit by cars and what else). Some of the cheaper koss offerings are very good for this. I use the ksc-75 clip ons. They have not died on me yet.

You should definitely state your price range.

Cycling with headphones on is dangerous for you and everyone around you. That's why it's illegal in socially responsible places. Please reconsider this plan.

I'd say it is responsible with open phones and at sane volumes.
