Hi from France !
 
I'll try to keep it simple but you gonna have to excuse me for all the mispelling and other mistakes i'll do because i'm really f**** up ! (and french !)
 
I'm searching a good pair of open circum cans, but my problem is that there is really too many headphones and I have no idea wich one I would buy
 
That's a shame because I really don't fancy or extraordinary headphone, I just want open/semi open circun good sounding cans under 200$ / 150€ 
 
What I like :
- metal / dnb / electronic stuff / ambient
- comfy headphones
- good bass not floppy
- "ovale" shape  like round shape but kind of square or like sennh if it's clearer
 
what i dislike:
- medium centric headphone, if i want to listen radio i use one !
- ultra flat and boring cans
 - 600 ohms, seriously who want a beyer ????
 
what i don't give a sh**
- people hearing my music
- how i look
 
 
If someone have / has ( too tired to search ) something for me I'm very interested =D
 
btw if some want chill with a french bast*** during this summer contact me !

Beyers are actually my suggestion. DT990 250ohm or 32ohm(32 if you don't have any amp). They are fun and exciting with great comfort.

It might help to know what source(s) your going to be plugging the headphones into?

Agreed.

It would also help to know what you mean by "good bass not floppy." People's definition of good bass can vary widely, and I'm not sure I've ever heard "floppy" bass :)

Do you have some other pairs of headphones that you have heard that you can use to describe the type of bass you are looking for (or not)?

Hi everybody !
 
Fist of all thanx for your replies =D
 
250 ohms that's ok but 600 not even in my worst nightmares, I don't have the money for a 500 bucks amp ...
 
I have a Fiio E07K Andes which make me really happy, I don't want to spend money on "audiophile" expensive DAC
 
Today I have my good old Koss UR40T, I know it's not 1st rank headphones but I like them they have a good shape, they are lightweight and they doesn't sound bad maybe a bit forward in the high but the bass aren't here enough.
 
In a perfect world I would have something like them, but with a way better build quality et a better sound, much clearer with deep bass
 
 
 
Anyway thank you all for your replies =)

I'm not familiar with those Koss headphones. But since you have a good amp, I would imagine that either of the Beyers previously mentioned would be a good upgrade. That's quite a leap in class for headphones.

Just double check before you buy and make sure your Fiio E07K will support the impedance of whatever headphones you choose. There's an owners' thread for you DAC where they could help you figure that out: http://www.head-fi.org/t/638910/fiio-e07k-andes-review-and-help-thread

lol 600 ohm beyers are the best.
 
my favorite headphone is the 600 ohm T1. and the DT 990- 600 ohm is pretty sweet if you have an amp.
