My tired old Senn HD212Pros are dying, and even though I drive them through a Fiio E10 the sound is only "OK". It's time to replace them (well past time, actually)... and take a step up in quality of course.
I listen to all kinds of music (Baroque/Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, light Metal, Vocal of all kinds) and I like an open, transparent sound with warmish mids but most definitely not boomy bass, it needs to be tight. Detail in the highs of course but not too analytic or Tishy. Because of the office environment I need CLOSED cans (so much for an airy presentation! oh well) and decent isolation would be good. I have a BIG head and prefer circumaural pads. I was thinking of about a $200-ish budget but could go higher if someone talks fast enough.
