Hey guys, so I'm trying to find some good all-rounder headphones (I like alt rock, indie pop, bit of jangle pop, classical, etc.) that are around $175- $250. (preferably maybe a bit cheaper than $250, but I'm open to suggestions) I would prefer an open back headphone that has good, little punchy yet not overwhelming bass, clear and creamy mids and unsibilant treble. The phones should have at least fairly good clarity, transparency and soundstage. I would like the headphones to be comfortable, but sound is more of a necessity.
I've looked around quite a few threads but I've found little. I don't think I would like any AKG's or any Beyerdynamic's from what I've heard about them. I've heard the Senn 598's are good except for a tad of mid-bloom and underwhelming bass. I've also heard the Hifiman HE-400's are also good but they're a bit expensive at around $305 on eBay. I've got my eye on the Soundmagic HP200 as they seem to fit my needs, but I've heard little about them no matter where I search. I would like any suggestions- so say any good ones that come to mind! (BTW, if it helps, I own the Klipsch M40 but it seems almost no one has them.)
