Please help with a shortlist

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi good people. I'm looking to buy another pair of headphones and my budget is £100 or less. Here's what I currently own and how I'd describe their sound -

1. Shure SRH-840 (full size closed-back cans which sound generally neutral to my ear).

2. Sennheiser PX100II (lightweight open-back cans with a warm laid-back sound, modded with HD414 pads).

3. Soundmagic E30 (IEM for out & about with an engaging lean sound but generally fairly neutral).

I'm now looking for something that offers some excitement. They can be closed-back or open but not IEM's. My source is flac files via a Samsung Galaxy Note 3. I don't own a DAC or amp but wouldn't rule them out as a future purchase. I'll obviously be using a 3.5mm connection which I think rules out the larger Grado's. I listen mainly to Americana, folk & rock. My shortlist is very short -

1. Grado SR60 or SR80.

2. Something by Beyerdynamic.

I don't want to buy Sennheiser again. Been there done that.

I'm sorry for all the questions but you guys are the experts. I'd like suggestions for the shortlist and opinions of my own choices so far. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to reading any advice or opinions you folks may have.

Gordon.
