Hello everyone,
I just wanted to hear some opinions about which closed back would be a good pick, around the 100 €/$ mark.
I’m planning on getting a Fiio btr3k to serve as an amp/dac (in case some new suggestions required an amp to power).
From what I’ve seen so far, it’s between:
  • ATH-M40x
  • Yamaha HPH-MT5
  • Sennheiser HD280PRO
  • AKG K361
Other recommendations not on this list are also welcome of course :)

I already have a pair of DT990 Pro, but I was looking for a closed back that could be a more fun experience to listen to music.

My taste of music is pretty all-rounder (jazz, classical, hip hop, rock, indie, …)

Thanks

Also check out the Yamaha HPH-MT5W here:

If you buy these and feel that the stock ear pads are uncomfortable, then get these ear pads instead (they probably ship from HK):

If you buy these and need a shorter cable:

If you buy these and want to prevent the headband pleather from flaking:
