Recommendations for portable headphone rig w/crossover

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

I am in the market for some headphones.

 

I listen to:

Prog jazz, rock, metal

Melodic + power metal

R&B

Classical Guitar, piano, and symphony

Eurodance

 

Looking for in a set of headphones:

1. Comfort - I listen to music 10-15 hours a day

2. Quality - I have very good ears. Sound quality is a must or I will just prioritize comfort

3. Warranty - I plan to keep these headphones and use them for two years, or about 7k to 10k hours. They need to last that long with minimal migration. Support is a must.

 

Features must include:

a) At least one crossover

b) Portability, and preferably battery power

 

Budget is 3k

 

Thanks in advance!

 

James

I'm not entirely sure what you mean.

 

Migration = ?

Crossover = more than one genre?

Portability = closed? foldable?

Battery power = bluetooth?

 

What's your source and amp?

Given your budget, would you consider buying more than one (e.g., open for home and closed for outdoors)?

Migration  = The headphones must maintain fidelity after long use

Crossover = Individual frequency band assignment to separate drivers

Portability = not a rackmount

Battery power = For the crossover - not something that needs a wall plug. 

 

I am currently considering JH3a or Roxannne.
