Hello there. I've been lurking here on the forums for about 3 months and I see that the people here are all very informative and helpful. I joined the forum to seek assistance and offer what little opinions I have, being the fledgling audiophile I am. I'm fairly new to this and I'm also fairly young. For so many years I was contended with just "hearing" the music, never "listening" to them. I would be happy with any headphone or earphone I got as long as I heard the music. Now I'm looking for a better experience.
I am currently using my android phone with the Fiio E11 and a Sennheiser HD 418 as my primary portable audio setup. I usually listen to Neo-Soul with some R&B and Funk by artists like Mayer Hawthorne, Jamie Lidell, Raphael Saadiq and Alice Russel. I also listen to some Rock, Metal, and Classical. So far, my headphones are doing okay, but I'm looking to upgrade on the cheap. My headphones are also starting to go bad so yeah.
I'm considering the following headphones for my upgrade:
Superlux HD 661
AKG K514 MKII
I'm not too much of a basshead since I enjoy alot of clarity in my music (I regret every buying the Razer Hammerhead Pros. The bassiest thing you will ever hear. Good for games, ugly for music). I'm also more inclined to go for Over-Ear headphones since I also enjoy the sound stage.
I'm a college student from the Philippines so my budget isn't so high, but I would really welcome your suggestions. If you could suggest any other headphones in the same price range as the three I mentioned, it would definitely be appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)
