I'm a UK buyer and I'm struggling to decide which cans to go for, I currently own a pair of Senn IE8's which I've had for around 5yrs, they're still going strong but I just fancy a new pair and these will be my first pair of cans.
I mostly listen to dance music and some hip hop/r'n'b so I want something with good bass, they need to be portable and light weight as I will use them at the gym.
Ah and I will be using them with my samsung SG4 without an amp.
I like the look of the momentums though I've read they're not necessarily a good fit, V Moda M100's look good but then I've read the thread on Creative Aurvana Live 2 so for £100 they seem like a decent buy.
I also like the look of UE 6000, DT770, MDR-1R and the AKG's (though not sure which model to consider ?).
Anything else I should consider ?
Are cans with 50mm drivers much better than 40mm ones ?
Also the problem here in the UK is there aren't many places stocking decent cans so I think I will just have to order several off amazon etc. and return the ones I don't want.
I should also just add I'm no audiophile ! :)
Thanks for any replies.
