Not quite sure if this is the correct forum, but it covers a couple of different headphone styles.
I have been using the Phiaton PS-210 "half in-ear" IEMs for quite some time now and I absolutely love them. I have no desire to try any other in-ear headphones because I believe I have found the perfect ones for me.
However, I am looking to get some more traditional headphones to use around the house / on the computer. Something on-ear, probably sealed would be the best fit (I don't want everyone else hearing what I am listening to). I have a pair of Sony MDR-ZX600 headphones that I got on sale and they sound like garbage for music. The Phiatons are quite clear and the Sony's in comparison sound muddy. I am hoping to find something that has a sound signature closer to what my IEMs give me but I honestly don't quite know where to start.
I have been looking at the Phiaton on-ear headphones (MS-430, MS-400) as an obvious starting point but I am open to suggestions. Budget is $200 or less. Sources will be my phone, tablet, PC (no amp).
