For quite some time, I've been using the Sony MDR-1R that a friend let me borrow. However, with my birthday on the horizon, he's kindly wanting them back and I don't even have money for another pair. Even so, I found them to be too dark/warm and have found myself enjoying a 'v-shaped' signature more often.
After looking around on the internet, I'm considering three similarly priced pairs:
- Audio Technica M40X: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Audio-Technica-ATH-M40X-Professional-Headphones-Black/dp/B00HVLUR54/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427975688&sr=8-1&keywords=m40x
- Sennheiser HD 439: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-Closed-Back-Headphones-Outstanding-Performance-black/dp/B005N8W1TM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427811048&sr=8-1&keywords=439
- Brainwavz HM5: http://www.amazon.co.uk/BRAINWAVZ-HM5-Studio-Monitor-Headphones/dp/B006MA9XXM
I would love some advice and your opinions on these and any other suitable headphones. Plus, I'm using an Asus Xonar U3 with my laptop; thought I should keep that in mind.
