I usually find myself in the portable headphones / IEM section, as I"m an IEM kind of guy, however recently I've become interested in full-size headphones although I'm having some problems and lack of time to research all the available options, so why not ask the community my question. I'm looking for fullsize headphone open, closed, on ear, over ear etc etc.. which lean cool in tonality, I'd like them to be rather bright and hoping you guys can give me some options.
For a target of reference Sony MDR-V6 tonality is about spot on to my tastes, I would be looking at an upgrade from those. When I say bright I would prefer the mid range transparent and detailed, (think analytical). The price I'm willing to spend is $200 - $300.
What are my options and has been proven successful in that price region and signature?
Basically I want to gather a list so I can start researching them myself.
