-Reading early 20th century novels.
Koss ksc75 - In my opinion, the ksc75 is the only good sounding, and worth buying, 100 dollar and below headphone recommended by people on this site - as I've learned most people here are delusional and don't really care about midrange presence.
Crappy turtle beach hpa2's
AT-AD700's - horrible, recessed midrange with lots of sibilance and fatiguing highs. Nice soundstage though.
Fischer FA-011 - just not enough mids, and the bass = meh. Nice soundstage though.
AKG k240 Studio 55ohm - Mids and soundstage are okay, but the bass is really cheap sounding and the upper mids and treble
get peaky and annoying.
AKG k271 MkII - Overall pretty nice mids with the lower mids lacking. The same peaky and annoying treble/upper
mids of the k240. Better bass and overall clarity than the k240 when driven well. This headphone is worth buying.
Koss dj100 - It's okay, but every frequency sounds extremely boring. The bass is slightly below neutral in terms of balance, but like everything on this headphone, it is very colored. The mids are the best part, but still boring and not as good or clear as the k271. The highs are nicely rolled off and non fatiguing, but have almost no detail.
