Just made my account after months of reading head-fi and not commenting. Current headphones: Soundmagic PL50 (In-Ear) and Shure SRH440. I'm also currently awaiting the Aurisonics Rockets from their kickstarter campaign (rainbow finish and mic).
I've been wanting to upgrade my SRH440's to a circumnaural, open headphone for a few months now. I listen to almost every genre of music with the exception of most country songs lol so these headphones will need to be able to competently reproduce a wide range of genres. I was considering the AKG Q701 because there's really just a lot of things I like about it, but I have no way of testing them out for a lack of a headphone store in my area or any decent dealers. Also, I'm beginning to make my own music (mostly dubstep/trap) and would like to be able to use them as studio headphones.
If anyone has any suggestions, the headphones need to have:
- Removable cable
- Open-back design
- Reasonably flat Frequency Response
- Something that can be worn for around 3 or more hours at a time
- Not an especially fatiguing sound
- Around $250 or under
Thank you guys!
