Hello and thank you for reading my post.
Firstly, I love music but I don't really have any knowledge regarding the science of audio.
I purely enjoy the artistic and emotional portion of it. I cant go out and test many headsets, so I am relying
on you guys who have the science portion of music figured out. Please help me.
I currently have Ultrasone DJ pro ( I have had for about 8 years) and It seems to be cracking up so I am
looking for my next set of headphones.
I listen to a wide, wide variety of music, Data is below
5% jazz (Mainly vocal Jazz)
10% classical (I love Mahler)
15% Japanese pop music (including anime songs, Cocco, Kokia, Bonnie Pink, Clammbon, supercar, qururi, etc)
15% Psychedilic/goa trance (infected mushroom, GMS, shpongle, etc, wizzynoize, protoculture, etc)
15% chillout/ambient (chilled euphoria type, tycho, rei harakami, mum, buddha bar series)
5% 90's punk/ska melodic rock (NOFX, No use for a name, bad religion, less than jake, MXPX, hi-standard, kemuri, etc)
15% Post rock ( Radiohead, Worldendgirlfriend, sigurros, mogwai, toe, no.9 etc)
15% Electronic variety (Chicane, Squarepusher, Amon-tobin, underworld, towa tei, system 7, safri duo, royksop,etc)
5% 90's hardcore (Slipknot, deftones, rage against the machine etc)
5% Non-agressive Hiphop ( Nujabes, Funky DL, etc)
I am looking for a single headset (Headset or earplugs) that will give my the best listening experience of the above type of music.
I understand that this is a difficult request but would highly appreciate any input, advice, suggestions from you guys who understand sound.
MY budget absolute maximum is 700 USD. I will be using the headset on an classic ipod or iphone 90% of the time.
I need a closed type so that the sound does not disturb others on public transport.
Thanks for you help in Advance
