Firstly let me apologise if I blabber or what I say doesn't make any sense, i'm new to this!
Right, my dilemma is that I am on the look for a decent pair of headphones. They will be used for mainly either at home listening, or used at the gym (non cardio).
I currently have a set of Shure SE215 in ears, and have a set of Bose OE (originals, not the OE2's) and this will be a replacement of the Bose.
My music taste does vary, however what I do not listen to is rock, garage, country, rap. It's mainly R&B, some dance, some pop and female vocalists. I am not a bass head, hence why I am ignoring the Monster and the Beats range, however needs to have something there.
So upon my research, I have read reviews and seen the looks of a few headphones, varied from on ear and over ear, I would prefer over ear.
What I do know is that I have been coming across these alot:
AKG K550 ( I hear lacks bass but are V good headphones but are big)
PSB M4U ( 1 or 2 - not bothered about NC however the built in amp on the 2's I hear are good - but also look big)
Sennheiser Momentums ( looks good and reviews again say good)
V-Moda M-100 ( Rave reviews, seems ideal however a pain to find here)
Denon D2000 ( heard good reviews, however build issues with the infamous screw holding the ear cups in ?)
I have sampled the Momentum OE - and to be honest I didn't see anything wow about them. Due to that, It isn't really on my list, but due to the good reviews I decided to put it up on their anyways.
I am in the UK, I am a short guy 5"8 and say have a normal size head and wear glasses.
So I am on here to see if there is any way I can narrow the list down, or maybe even add something else to the mix ? I know it's subjective, but the problem I have is that I can't easily listen to most of the headsets in question here, so I am relying on user input and luck!
I would say budget is around £150 - £200
