I generally go by my nickname Bean and am in my mid 30s. Originally from Switzerland I now move about the world every couple of years, due to my wife's job.
Enough of me for now and let's talk audio.
I'm looking for a new headset incl. mic for when I'm on the road. I intend to power it through my Nexus 4 and don't plan to carry an amp around with me.
To narrow down the field here's what I usually listen to: rock, acoustic soul, jazz, some old school hip hop, the occasional classic orchestral and electric beat (mostly electro swing).
I already have a set of the original Grado SR80 and waiting saving for my Dynaudio speakers. I like the Grados but only use them at home due to their open design.
Now as said I'm looking for something new for the road. Should be closed (not anoy bystander's), have a mic for those nasty interrupting calls, detachable one sided cable.
Sound wise I like my SR80 though it could use a bit more bass when not used properly amped.
So far I considered the Momentum (bit hard on the budget and the head band could be more comfy).
Custom One Pro with a different inline-mic cable (still need to find a place to test hear them)
Amperior and Momentum on-ear are a bit cheaper but wasn't overly impressed by the sound.
Thanks for all the reading and happy suggesting.
Regards and thanks in advance Bean
