Hello to the people here at head fi :) I'm looking to buy a new pair of headphones and I'm looking for recommendations, about a year ago I bought my superlux 668B and a small Fiio amp and I've been pretty happy with them. I'm not sure if you could really call me an audiophile as I don't know nearly any of the stuff you guys talk about here (drivers and bright sounding etc) but I do have a great appreciation for good music, especially when you feel that tingling down your spine.
I can't really pinpoint what bothers me with my current headphones. I listen to a lot of indie, EDM as well as mainstream, the probem with my superlux is I don't really think it's meant to handle EDM because of the high pitched noises (i think there from the synth). Listen to Young Blood by the Naked and Famous, that's one song I don't even bother playing on my headphones because it just sounds so bad.
I'm looking for headphones at around $100 (where I live, the philippines) but I would be willing to stretch my budget up to $150. I can't really go beyond that because I'm a college student and have to take this from allowance I've saved :( As for the headphones them selves I prefer them to be open, doesn't matter if circumaural or supraural and I don't mind looks either though I would appreciate a bit of bass. Right now I'm leaning towards the Grado Sr80i and the owner of the shop from where I'll probably make my purchase (Egghead audiohub https://www.facebook.com/eggheadph) reccomended the Sennheiser HD518.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone :)
