Open Over Ear Headphone for EDM for 200-350

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, I am looking for an Over ear can between the $200-300 can (could go up a bit if needed) for mostly EDM. So far my search has brought me to things like the Philips Fidelio x1, He-400, HD 650 (would have to wait for it to go on sale/buy used), DT990 and DT880.

The HE-400 worries me as much of the music I listen to features a large quanitity of female vocals and that does not seem to be a strong point of the HE-400. I have heard the DT990 bass is good, but the mids leave something to be desired, while the DT880 has great mids but could be a little light in the bass department. 

I have a Fiio e07k and Future Sonics Atrio mg7s, they sound good but are a bit sibliant and fatiguing after about 30 minutes. I could buy a new/better amp/dac in a few months if necessary. Any ideas or guidance on the situation would be greatly appreciated.

HE-400 is amazing for many types of EDM.
