I've been lurking around Headfi for awhile measuring people's opinions to see if they coincide with my own, but I just think going straight for advice would be the best decision here.
So, without further ado, I'm currently on the look out for a pair of headphones no more than $200 or so dollars with everything needed to use them (amp, ear covers, etc). As for specifications, I really want a more comfortable pair, hopefully with some better sound quality as well. I listen to a wide-array of music, but not much that's too bass heavy, so I'd probably like more of a focus on mids. I've been on the lookout for awhile but I just can't decide. I've been using a set of Audio Technica's ATH-M30s for a few years now, but I'm tired of the ear and head pain I get from wearing them for extensive periods of time. Because of this I'd like to stay away from Audio Technica in general. I've tried a friend of mine's Beyer DT770s and definitely liked them for their comfort and sound quality, but he's into a lot of heavy metal/bass heavy music like Dupstep and trap, so I'm not sure they would be a great choice for myself. I'd really appreciate some input on this matter. Thanks a bunch in advance!
Here's a quick rundown to save time:
Total price under $200
Closed system or very quiet
No Audio Technicas
Good mids-though I'm willing to sacrifice here for overall quality
Use with my laptop, iPod, and TV
Would prefer to be able to buy off Amazon
