Hi guys! I recently bought 3 pairs of headphones, and i still can't find the one for me, so i came here for your help.
I am little bit of a basshead, i want a headseat that's got good punch, that bass kick (vibrating) feel for dubstep and other bass heavy genres, but still sound good for the rest of genres
I have owned the following hp's:
-steelseries siberia v2 :had them for gaming, broke in 4 months
-razer tiamat 2.2: the bass on these was amazing, but other than that, they sounded terrible.
-sennheiser hd 439: great sound, bass punch wasn't strong enough, also they weren't loud enough for me.
-sennheiser momentum on ear: amazing sound quality, bass punch still isn't enough, and while they're louder than the hd 439, i still need them to be a tad louder, also, they aren't very comfortable with glasses..
I listen to a high variety of music:
2/3 of my music is dubstep, dnb like:
Brass knuckles - lie to you
Red - hymn for the missing (guillotine remix)
Red - death of me (guillotine remix)
Massive attack - paradise circus (zed's dead remix)
skrillex - cinema
Bring me the horizon -sleepwalking
In fear and faith - rellapse collapse
and other genres:
radiohead - creep
mind the gap - looking for the magic
cris cab - liar liar
john newman - love me again
My budget is about 200$-300$
I want a headphone that has sound quality like the momentum's, but makes the music feel more alive, fun. I want to feel the bass punch, the drums kick.. i want the music to be engaging (i don't really know how to explain xD).Comfort while wearing glasses is also a must.
I would like them to be somewhat portable 'cause i'll be taking them to work.
I will listen to them with my phone Htc One X, and my computer with the Asus Xonar DG soundcard. (i am willing to upgrade the soundcard, or buy a dac/amp like the Fiio e07k if necessary)
Here's some headset's i've been looking at:
closed: ATH-ES7, AKG 701, AKG 550, fidelio L1, sony mdr 1r, v-moda m100 ( a bit over my budget.. but willing to get them if they're worth it)
and, if the sound quality is worth giving un on portability, i am willing to buy open hp too:
fidelio x1, hd 558
I am still open for more headphones recommandations.
I will be buying them either from amazon.de or avstore.ro so i will be able to buy only headphones that are listed there.
