I'm looking for a set of Closed headphones that would work well unamped. I might get an amp eventually, but for the next 1-2 years i'll be doing a lot of travelling, so an amp might be a little cumbersome. I've normally been used to using iems like Shures or Westones for their clarity and sound isolation, but lately my brother got a pair of ATH-ES10 headphones paired with a SR-71 amp that just blew me away.
Would like to know what is a good set of closed headphones to audition. My budget is around 1k, but i don't mind paying more if they perform well enough. Would be nice if the headphones have good sound isolation as well. It's not a deal breaker, but i would prefer being in a world of my own when listening to my music. At least until i see the headlights of the oncoming car/train. >.<</p>
Thanks in advance
