Budget: up to $300 (a little more if its really worth it.)
-Closed or semi-closed
-Over the ears (circumural)
-comfortable (for very long sessions)
-somewhat portable (not too ugly. Is a plus if i can wear around neck, but not req.)
-isolation- medium/high (i like to be in my own little world, dont want to hear others but i dont care if they hear me) also i dont want to pay extra for anc or anything, just need decent pnc.
Will be used for:
-Music (all types, mostly rock/metal)
-TV & movies
-FPS and rpg style computer games
-sometimes ill have a game and music on at same time.
Will be used with:
-Samsung galaxy s4
-Sony av reciever
-mp3 files (mostly 320kbps)
Desired Sonic signatures:
Highs: Should be clear and not tinny.
Mids: most important. I want clear mids that would allow me to pick out all the parts if i want.
Bass: should be tight and get loud without getting muddy. Should be able to accurately deal with things like dual bass drums pounding rapidly (like in thrash metal). Should respond well to an eq.
Loudness: should get very loud without ruining sq
Soundscape: has decent positioning for fps games (sound quality is more important though)
This isn't a requirement, but i would prefer a detachable wire.
I am open to getting an amp if it would make them sound better.
