First I'll mention I'm not an audiophile,
but I love music very much and I'm used to exellent sound quality since I currently own the Vsonic GR01 IEM's, which I listen to daily a couple of years now.
I just LOVE the Vsonic's sound,
they're balanced and pretty much neutral sounding, details and instruments separation are exellent.
Suddenly my ears began to suffer with IEM's, they ''get blocked'' after a short time and the pressure is killing me, sound quality thrown to the trash in this situation. Same thing with all sizes of eartips, so I guess that's it for me with IEM's and time to use over the ear headphones.
My needs from the headphones:
-In terms of sound quality I would like a pretty similar sound signature as the Vsonic's.
I listen mainly to metal and rock, including classic rock, and a little bit of chillstep.
Very basically - as I said, I think a high detailed neutral balanced sound, with not too strong, acurrate bass is what I want.
-Comfort wise I think only over the ear design will be comfortable for me, and my ears are pretty big so the headphones should be big enough.
My pc gaming headphones are on ear and it's really uncomfortable for me, even tough most people who reviewed them said they're comfortable.
-I'm going to use them outside and in busses,
so good isolation and a little sound leakage are important.
-I'll use them with my samsung galaxy note only, no amp.
Hope I'm not forgetting anything.
*Budget is up to 300$ max, including shipping.
I just want to mention I've read a lot of reviews and threads, but still can't find the one.
Also I have no access to try and wear anything anywhere in my country.
Audio Technica ATH-M50 seems nice but the non detachable cable is bothering me, and I have no time to wait for the new version with the detachable cable.
Maybe Beyerdynamic custom one pro,
but I'm not sure about their sound detail, instruments separation and soundstage.
And basically if they're good enough.
AKG K545 seems nice too but I think that their earpads are too small for my ears.
Would like to get your suggestions cause I'm suffering with my IEM's meanwhile lol
