hey guys, I'm looking for a nice pair of open backed headphones in the range of £200-£350. My system will be wav files playing from a computer, to a DAC (probably an arcam rDAC), feeding to a graham slee novo. I like a lot of hip hop from late 90s to early 2000s such as eminem, D12, Cypress hill, Dr Dre and also like other genres such as reggae and alternative rock/indie including the likes of Ini Kamoze, Damian Marley, Cold Play and Kasabian. I don't necessarily like colouration to the bass, but I want a strong bass response, but without sacrificing clarity. At the moment I feel likely contenders are the grado 325is, the senneheiser 650 or the grado RS2i (can get for around £340 from the States). I hope for plenty of options, and will try take all comments into consideration. Sound leakage isn't a problem as I have a pair of nice closed back headphones for when people are around!
