I really need someone's help with headphones as I have gone from a time when I spent all my time commuting in my car with its finely tuned sound system, to working locally and needing to get my music time by other means. (a new baby prevents any speaker volume at home).
I have searched extensively over the last couple of weeks for pointers on which headphones to buy. I currently have a pair of HD215's which are nothing special at all and provide nothing in the way of sub bass. I chose the HD518's because of the 'dark' signature and the emphasis on bass, however, although they are slightly better in the quality of sound they provide, they still don't have what I consider sub bass. Even my Blackberry premium in-ears provide the same level ! The HD518's are on their way back to Amazon as we speak.
I am open to all types of headphone, in-ear, open backed over ear etc.
I am willing to spend between £100 and £150 ish. but would consider going higher if it was absolutely necessary.
I basically want a headphone that provides me with that full richness of sound that a subwoofer provides. I do listen to dance music, but also many other styles and it is this rich warmth I am looking to re-create.
With the HD518's being advertised and reviewed as being particularly bassy, am I just looking for something that doesn't exist within a headphone ? Am I just not looking for the right things in reviews ? Is it definitely sub bass not just bass I need to be looking at ? Am I expecting too much n a headphone ?
I hope someone is able to help, without my 'music time' i'm feeling a bit lost................
