Currently have a sennheiser 598, not that satisfied

  1. NatureEnergy
    hey everyone i currently own a sennheiser 598 over a year now. Im not really satisfied with this headphone. my previous headphone was a beats by dr dre studio. 
    I listen to techno, instrumental, some  classical ( beatles,beegees),a little  rock (nirvana)  and some pop music..I have to admit the bass is lacking on the senn but i do not want something that has muddy bass and ruins the clarity of the headphones. One of my fav techno is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B28AQ6898BU. Its something calm and also techno-ish :)
     
    I was recommended a beyer 770dt pro at first but i decided to go for the sennheiser 598. the ques is, is it worth to get a pair of beyer 770dt right now? Also, i hate the open headphones design.. I didint know it was this bad. 
     
    Or am i better off with an IEM? im using it on my phone / PC. Im just afraid IEM will damage my hearing more. I usually listen to 50%volume. But the senn 598 comfortability is incredibly awesome.
     
    EDIT: i've got my hearing test just a while ago my results were normal thankfully. so i do not want to risk getting hearing damage or something like that. I wanted to invest in speakers but i dont think it suits me. the portability is poor and the sound may not be as good as headphones/IEM
     
    my budget is around 300-400$

    Id go with the kef m500, psb m4u1, ATH WS99, DT770, or ATH A900x.

    Hey man! I"ve changed my mind to go for IEM and my budget is 100-200.
    Considering the tdk ba200, Yamaha eph100, beyer Xp series and Hifiman re400
    Which of these will be good for my music genre? Not too much of a bass head but I want the bass to make me go like "wow" at the same time also clear vocals

    Sorry, I know nothing about iems. All I could recommend are the TF10,and GR07 Bass Addition.
