I am looking for some help in choosing a decent pair of phones for travel on the train to work. So far I have tried iems (x10, erp4) but they are uncomfortable for me and I get "complications" with pressure inside my ears. I also tried the Ath m50s but find them very sibilant and overly bright and aggressive (interestingly not an issue with my Sr80i or koss ksc75 which I love).
My needs are...
Closed design/good isolation
Grado/Koss type sound sig (tight understated bass, good musical mids, crisp but not harsh trebles)
Good for metal, rock, hip hop, indie and electronic.
Not bothered about size or comfort, I have a small head and a backpack
My source is a Fiio x3 playing wav or flac files.
I have thought about the Sony MDRzx700 and koss pro dj100 so far, any help would be hugely appreciated, thanks.
