As per the title suggests, I need a little help
I am looking for a set of headphones with a flexible budget of around £200 GBP. I will mainly use them for home listening from an iphone or laptop playing high quality mp3s (256/320kps) with some VBR involved. (no amplifier)
I have auditioned a few sets so far and have been left feeling disappointed with them all. Heres the list...
Denon AH D600
Sennheiser Momentums over ear
Dre Beats studio mkii
I am huge fan of music and listen to various genres including rock, acoustic, Jazz, hip hop & electronic. I love great sounding deep bass but don't appreciate it drowning everything out (the case with the xb800s)
Sets that I've heard lots about but yet to try include
Sennheiser HD 598
Sony pulse wireless
custom one pros
Focal spirit one
Audio technica ATH M50s
So I hope people may be able to steer me in a new direction??
Am I better off looking at a mid range sennheiser with a decent portable amp?
Or is there a good "plug n play" hidden gem that I may have missed along the way?
I also wanted to thank everyone who contributes to these forums as it makes fascinating reading and proves very helpful for the likes of myself. Thanks!
