Sorry for the n00b post. I've seen a few threads similar to mine, but my tastes vary a little from other users.
I've had the Shure se530's and 535's for 5 years now. They've been amazing, truly stunning for electronic music, but I'm ready to upgrade to big boy headphones. Looking for something around a grand (plus or minus 300). I mainly listen to trance, progressive trance, progressive house and classical music (Matt Lange, Above & Beyond, Hybrid, Mahler, Digweed, Anjunabeats and anjunadeep). I'm not looking for overwhelming bass. If anything I have a lot more appreciation for the sub-bass. That's not to say that I don't want true and representative bass. Sound quality is the most important thing to me, portability and comfort are second. It'd be nice to take them out of the house with me, but if I can't I'll always have my trusty shure's. One last note, big sucker for euphoric and well produced vocals. The shure's had a way about making good vocals just sparkle. Would love to have a commensurate result from some over the ear's.
I've heard good things about Grado's, Audeze's and Ultrasone's. Just not sure which would work for me. I really appreciate any feedback and advice. Thanks guys!
