Next upgrade for home and portable use. Budget around 400€

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for something to buy next and these headphones are on that list:

B&W P5 220€

B&W P7 399E

NAD Viso HP50 ~280€

BO H6 399€

KEF M500 300€

 

I currently have IE800, Momentum over-ear and newest model of Skullcandy Aviator. Out of those the Aviator sounds best without any EQ. I don't do EQ. Aviators have very clean mids and highs which I like. But at high volumes they can get a bit screechy.

 

IE800 is is basically what I'm looking for but with much less bass. Aviators and Momentum have a good amount of bass to my tastes. I listen to all genres of music so the headphones cannot be a one trick pony.

 

One thing I also appreciate in a headphone is quality of materials and portability. I don't find the Momentum to be really portable as they don't collapse or fall flat. Materials though are top notch.

 

I'm kinda leaning towards B&W P5 for the construction and I read that they have a mid-centric sound I might like. I'm unable to test-drive any of the headphones so I'm doing extensive research into these headphones.

Also look into the Soundmagic HP100 which are known for a very neutral sound.
