My very first post.

 

Recently, an uncle who moved to Australia (I guess he didn't outgrow his love of kangaroos as a kid! :-) handed me down his Maverick Tubemagic D1+.  

 

Anyways,...  I am a measly factory worker with a somewhat limited budget of $250-$300, searching for a pair of closed circumaural headphones that would get the most out of my freshly inherited dac-amp.  

 

Appearance is not a factor.  Comfort is preferred, of course, but can be sacrificed to some extent.  Both the small and bigger Momentums and the Amperior were too bright and too in-your-face for my taste.

 

If there's a cocktail of SR80's mids and highs and ATH-M50's bass out there, it would definitely tickle my fancy.

 

Genres I listen too are acoustic, vocals, different flavors of rock (folk, grunge, classic, alt, psychedelic, 60's, etc.). There's the occasional mood for classical/instrumental, ballads and oldies.

 

Source equipment are desktop pc/laptop/tablet, connected to D1+ by USB

 

Media are FLAC, 320kbps, CD.  

 

Many thanks in advance for your advise and/or any link to existing threads.
