Hi!
 
I'm looking for a new headphones; they should be closed and I would like neutral/balanced ones, just because I'm that kind of person :)
Also they should be comfortable enough to wear them for say 4-5 hours without significant discomfort (more is better).
Price limit is $400.
 
My source is ASUS Xonar Essense ST (with default amplifiers) and preferred genres is rock, ambient, jazz, sometimes games.
I'm not sure but probably sound clarity and naturalness is most important for me.
 
I've done some research, starting here http://www.head-fi.org/t/639443/best-closed-headphones-within-300-450 and eventually narrowed my choice to two models, Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 ohm and Ultrasone Pro 900.
 
But while reading the reviews again right on that site it turns out that both models are somewhat bass-oriented :) With middles suffering.
 
Is there any more neutral good models in that pricerange?
 
Thanks for reading :)

AKG K550. If you are into soft rock, they will do well. Not suited for aggressive genres.
