G'day, gentlemen... been a little while since I've been on here. 2010, in fact, when I was looking for advice on headphones for metal. I ended up with a pair of Grados SR225i's, and they were absolutely superb. They've just given up the ghost, and I'd buy another pair in a flash, but my situation has changed, and I need a pair of robust headphones (which the Grados were not) that don't leak sound (which the Grados definitely did...)
I've been looking at Beyerdynamic DT-770s 80OHM for starters, which would be ideal, but I need something I can drive off anything, and one of the recurring comments I've been seeing about these is: "you need a good amp"
So, I need something quite specific...
- £200 max. I feel like spending too much would be a waste when I won't be using an amp. These are for remote use only, I have a rather lovely pair of Audioengine A5's at home which get used for most home listening.
- closed back, robust
- comparable sound to Grados SR225i's if possible.
- can drive them off a brick.
- mostly used for metal and rock, a bit of gaming.
Recommendations? Thank you
EDIT: Currently leaning towards Audio Technica ATH-A900x's.
