Best neutral headphones for $125?
I'd also recommend the Sony ZX701ip which is a great discontinued portable that is nicely balanced and sounds fairly neutral, it's mid forward but keeps the bass and treble in check and sounds close to my hi fi home stereo fwiw.
If you're looking for something in that price range tending towards "neutral",
I recommend the KRK KNS 8400 (for starters, anyway).
But the type of music you reference makes me think something with a bit
more bass would be a better fit: the Audio Technica ATH M50 would probably
It isolates very well, but you're right about the size.
Used SRH840 then. It's the fun version of neutral, and it's definitely portable.
I'm not sure I agree with you on the recommendation, but I really
like your phrase 'it's the fun version of neutral'. And personally,
I think the 840's are a bit large (& heavy) to be portable...but they're
a solid choice for headphones generally in the price range.
