I've been teetering on whether or not I want to keep these NAD Viso HP50s for a while, but it's really starting to lean toward not. The main reason being they are ear warmers, and hot ears are really uncomfortable to me, even though the fit is nice. They sound pretty awesome, obviously, or else I wouldn't have to debate keeping them or not. Although I have to adjust the equalizer a lot depending on which song is playing much more than I would like.
So, I'm hoping for headphones similar to the HP50s but without the drawbacks it brings to me. Looking for headphones that have excellent sound (of course!), that I can wear comfortably for long periods of time, that hopefully wouldn't need a lot of EQ tinkering. These are difficult traits to find described in headphone reviews, I know. But what headphones should I take a look at? I was originally going to say closed headphones only but I wonder if open headphone would be better to combat hot ears.
Budget is $350, but I'm fine with staying down to $200 or $250.
