Hi! This is my first post here at head-fi and my wallet doesn't like this.
Currently I own a Grado SR60i and the modest Superflux hd681. I love the sound of both but, due the nature of those headphones, they leak quite alot and aren't suited for office work.
Put it simply: If you are a Grado fan, which closed back headphones would you recommend? I mostly enjoy the sound quality; the instrument precision, the brightness and the soundstage.
I'm looking for some proper cans over-the-ear or on-ear to use mostly at work (I work in a openspace, so a lot of talking going on). Apart from a good isolation and low leaking, it should be comfortable since it will be used hours straight. Also, I wear glasses and have a medium/small head.
Sound quality is the most important part. I think I'm looking for a neutral signature and a wide soundstage. I'm not a basshead. I'll listen mostly rock, grunge, indie, jazz, lounge/chillout and eventualy some electronic music such as drum&bass & electro...
My price range is bellow 150£.
I'll use the fiio e07k to drive them.
I've made some research and found some cool candidates:
AKG k550 - The reviews seemed to good to be true: precise, well balanced, soundstage, good isolation... BUT looses a lot of bass when wearing glasses (anyone with glasses can confirm this?)
Audio-Technica ATH-M50(x?) - nice reviews but the mids seems to be recessed. How is isolation and leakage? Can the fiio correct it with the EQ?
Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO Headset (250 OHM) - I've read the were colorful and for bassheads but extremely confortables. How do they compare with Grado?
Shure SRH840 - I've read good references but they cross the 150£ barrier. Are they much better than the previous?
Seinnheiser Momentum On-Ear - same as Shure.
Which one is best suited? Does anyone have experience with one of those phones paired with fiio e07k/e17?
Any other headphones bellow the price range are more than welcome! Many thanks
