Neutral, Comfortable, Over-Ears, Closed Back? Please?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I've been around a while and probably have some guesses what you might recommend, but I'm beating the bushes for something new. On-Ears are totally out. I've tried 7 or 8 and the only I found comfortable was the ESW9A. I'm looking for something more balanced and detailed across the spectrum.Basically, I'd be happy with an Alpha Dog that is lighter/more comfortable. (For some reason, the leather strap really chafes my scalp; I just can't get used to it.) I need closed back because its more appropriate for my office. 

 

I love timbre. And strings. But I also love sub-bass when called for. I love balance. If I err toward something, its probably toward liking lush mids, but I despise overdone mids that ruin balance. 

 

If it helps, I I thought the SRH1540 and HP50 were too warm and bassy.

well, you didn't gave us a budget, so I'll go for the cheap options.

 

the always mentioned NVX XPT100 and the Senn HD280 Pro seem options to consider. give them a look

If the phone were good enough, I'd probably be willing to go up to $400.

Soundmagic HP100 might be a good choice for you.

That was not on my radar at all. I'm a little thrown off by Clieos' referring to it as Etymotic like. I actually like Etymotic but they fall apart when it comes to electronic music, etc. Nice recommendation! 

 

I'm trying to find someone who has heard both HP100 and the DT660.

B&O H6
Focal Spirit Pro and Focal Spirit Classic
ATH A900x

Thanks for the advice! 

 

I owned the Pro. Pretty much exactly the sound signature I was looking for the clamp pressed my glasses horribly.

Glad that helped.

You might try asking in the HP100 thread to see if anyone has heard both: http://www.head-fi.org/t/616201/soundmagic-hp100-review
