Hey guys, I am on my track on finding the perfect headhpones and hoping it can happen soon. So far I am set for portable cans, but just need some good home headphones. So far I have owned:

-Super.fi 5 KEEPER
-Koss KSC-75 KEEPER
-HD-555 SOLD

I was not happy with the HD-555 after hearing the super.fi's. I feel that everything is waaaay mellow and droning. Almost like the music was a robot, where as I want something that will make me feel like I am there and go woaaahhhh eargasm. I really want some help so I am going to let you guys know some things about me.

I listen to:

Lots of reggae, jam bands, mellow rock(jack jonhson, DMB), rap, and a little bit of rock.

I want:

Nice, accurate bass, awsome sound quality, smooth sound, great for the music I listen to, decently comfortable. Leaking is not an issue as these will be at home phones. I like the super.fi sound so maybe something around terms of that.

My budget $120

Please reccomend away, and tell me why you reccomend what you do.


Thanks in advanced,


benton

Try used DT990 pro but you will need an amp. Sound really great with mellow rock

If not, MS1 will be a great choice.

It kinda sounds like you want a Grado.

Yup, sounds exactly like what you want to me. If you find that the HD555 is too laid back, you're probably looking for a Grado/Alessandro.
