Now, I've been reading a lot of threads and reviews on headphones BUT I don't know which headphones will do well for the music I listen to.
So as said in the title, I like to listen to a lot of J-Pop and J-Rock.I would say that I am a bit of a treble head and I don't really like the bass all THAT much.
I am kind of on a strict budget on <$250 and the headphones must be on Amazon or a trusted site.
I currently own the Audio Technica ATH-M50S and the Etymotic HF5. Those are all running out on an HP laptop with a Fiio Andes E07K Amp/DAC for home use and on a Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 for portable use (But I am looking for headphones for home using).
It would also be wonderful to have Amp/DAC recommendations but I am strictly looking at headphones as of now (though I am thinking about getting the Fiio E09K for my Andes).
-I want headphones that has a decent soundstage (At least so I can tell the difference between the Audio Technicas)
-Nice sounding trebles and heavenly vocals (Little to no sibilance)
-Non-intrusive bass; non-warm
-Decent build quality (Don't want them breaking on me within like 2 weeks in)
-"Lively" sounding if that's the word I'm looking for
-And obviously a great overall sound
-REALLY good clarity and detail (Possibly more or par to my ATH M-50S)
-EDIT: Over-Ear Headphones (TOTALLY forgot to mention this)
-EDIT: I would also love it if the headphones would make me hold onto my bed as I listen to them as if I'm about to fly but that might be asking for too much :/
So yes, I am kind of asking for a lot I guess.
Currently, the headphone(s) I am looking at are...
- AKG Q 701 Quincy Jones
- SoundMAGIC HP200 (I decided to get these)
- ZMF Basic V1
- Sennheiser HD 598
