I currently own Panasonic HTF600's with Beyerdynamic valor pads and I feel it's time for an upgrade. I currently have them plugged into a Mbox 2 music interface and I don't think they are bad for the price but I get an annoying rattle buzzing sound with certain sounds especially bass. When I'm not using headphones I use my Mackie MR5 reference studio speakers.
That being said I'm looking for a new pair with a $200 budget, this can also include buying a headphone amp such as the fiio or whatever is recommended.
I mainly use my headphones for listening to music, games, and use them for recording music. I mainly listen to Electronic, Indie, Ambient, and some Rap and Rock here and there Examples: (Tycho, M83, Amtrac, Little Dragon, Daft Punk, Cut Copy, Washed Out, Toro Y Moi). I do find bass important but I also don't want it to be overkill. Another important thing is comfort, I'm also willing to rip off my valor pads if needed.
