Gotcha, I now have on my list the LBBs and the HE150 Pro.
Need to do my own research on reviews on those two, those are more like my budget for now. Thanks for the rec!
Actually to add a little bit more, the reason why I'm looking for a less vocal centric is because I'm a little sensitive to upper mids which most of the time come in the form female vocal, or sometimes saxophone. There were a time when I was talking to owner of audio stores online where I live and most are recommending me Moondrop SSRs and I had to re-sell them right away when I got my hands on it. The upper mids a lot of the times are too painful, even with different pair of eartips.
I wouldn't mind the mids if it's more forward on like let's say male vocals, long as the bass is not flooding the lower mids. But I also don't mind bright pair as long as the upper mids are not that forward.
The HE150 Pro has a bit of a forward upper mids. When underpowered the upper mids can be shouty, but with adequate amping the upper mids are slightly forward without being fatiguing. The HE150 Pro is quite tough to drive (150 ohm impedance), so it sounds bad on lower powered gear like non LG smartphones.
