I've been the proud owner of Sennheiser HD-25-1 for about 10 years now.
They're looking a bit shabby now and I've always found them really uncomfortable on my ears after about an hour.
I love the way they sound, but it's time to replace them.
I live in a rural area of Norway, so 'try before you buy' is not really an option.
I'm considering the over-ear momentums. Has anyone got any hands-on experience with both sets of cans and can make a comparison for me?
Can anyone recommend any other over-ear sets I should consider up to the $400 mark?
A bit about me.
I listen to all kinds of music, but mostly rock, punk, metal, techno, dnb, reggae, ska, folk, rap.
I love my music, but I don't consider myself an audiophile.
I'm not on a plane/train often, so noise cancellation is not something I'm bothered about. I like good damping and minimal leakage though.
I do like punchy bass, but I don't like it to be over-powering (beats) to the rest of the spectrum.
I would like an in-line mic if possible. I'm an android user.
Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
