Hello all! I'm a relative newbie seeking to get into high-end listening by starting my headphone collection with something in the <$400 range. I've done a lot of research, and tried to listen to everything I can get my hands on in local shops, but I think I'm going to be in a situation where I'm going to need to pull the trigger on a set of headphones that I can't listen to in person. My top contenders are the Meze 99 Classics and 1More Triple Drive Over Ear Here's my asking data: Price - prefer $400 or less Music - Mostly reggae and jazz, but have a wide collection and would like it to be a good "generalist" headphone with natural reproduction Sources - Laptop, android phone (tidal), portable music player in the future DAC/AMP - none to start, but will research and add a DAC later Must be on or over ear, must be closed back (will use in the office and with sleeping kids) I've been reading online for many hours and have stopped by all the high-end audio places which carry such things I can find, but after all my reading my top choices are this Meze 99 Classic, and the new 1More Triple Driver over-ear. I found Inner Fidelity and realized that both of these cans are on his wall of fame (awesome site). I was 5 seconds away from ordering the Meze 99 classics when I realized that the gentlemen from Inner Fidelity lowered his impressions substantially based on the larger ear pads. His blog on that topic was that he was considering removing them from the wall of fame: that was 1 year ago and they're still up, but this caused me to take pause and consider other options (which was when I encountered the 1Mores). Can anyone help point me in the right direction?
