Upgrade recommendations from Klipsch Image One

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm looking at spending around $200.

I'm going overseas for a year so portability is important but I'm mostly going to be using them in my room because I don't want them to get stolen. 

Major music genre's are: Electronic downtempo and downtempo in general, Electronic Indie, indie rock, everything else.

I like crisp highs. I'm not good with the terminology yet but having beautiful highs is most important but I don't necessarily want the treble overpowering.  

 

They're going to be driven mostly by my Galaxy s3. Also my Asus laptop's basic sound card. I'd prefer to go ampless. 

 

I was looking at the Sennheiser HD 25-1 II. What else can you recommend? 

I may have to go out on a limb and just buy one because I have no way of trying out headphones. So don't lead me astray. Sensei. :o2smile:

Thanks for the suggestion.

 

I was reading some reviews and they are reportedly neutral as they are marketed as studio monitors. I am only casual listening so perhaps some color would be good? or is this really an exceptional musical experience?
