Need help finding good set of open over ear headphones

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

I'm looking for a pair of open over ear headphones and will give some details on the gear I'll be using them with and what I'll be listening to.  I'm willing to spend $2-300 apiece and don't mind buying used from the buy/sell forums.

 

Sources

Rockboxed iPod Video + Old Xin amp or Fiio E12

iPhone 3GS + Venturecraft Go-DAP

iPhone 5s + Fiio E12

Hoping to get a Fiio X5 when they come out for portable use and as a dad/amp with my MacBook Pro

 

Ear/Headphones I Own And Like

Beyerdynamic DT250 (80ohm)

Fischer DAB02

Incase Sonics

Meelectronics A161P

Ultrasone HFI650 Trackmaster

 

What I'll Be Listening To (in order of listening time)

Electronic: Autechre, Boards of Canada, Oval, Pansonic

Metal: Ghost, Iron Maiden, King Diamond, Megadeth

Rock: Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Stereolab

Minimalist Classical: Cage, Glass, Reich, Sakamoto, Satie

Jazz: Coltrane, Miles, Rollins

 

Format

Mix of 256kbps AAC, 320kbps MP3, and Rdio on portables

ALAC and FLAC on my MacBook Pro

 

Where I'll Be Listening

Mostly while chilling out at home after the wife and kids go to bed.

 

Thanks in advance.  I appreciate your help.

 

Nikolaus

HE-400 would be nice considering your needs and genres.
