Are there any headphones like this?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello there,
i was just searching headphones around and suddenly realized that most closed headphones that are 'popular'/'well-known' have
a V shaped signature frequency where the bass and treble is more prominent or one end is a major sound factor.
Now i have been wondering, are there any closed heaphones where the Mids are the more 'wow'ing factor over the highs and lows?
i'm not planning to buy anything, just want to know, and yes i'm talking bout closed headphones(over ear preferably).

yes actually the Audio Technica W1000x is just that! The mids are where the hump is, with a touch of roll off in sub bass 

 

I enjoy them very much actually,
