headphones for home listening?
I'm looking for some headphones for at home listening around the £150 price bracket. I just bought some AKG K550's and to be honest I'm very disappointed with them and will be returning them. whilst i found the sound detailed it seemed to be all high and mid range with virtually no bass at all. I also found them to be very quiet, i tried them on 2 systems as well as my iMac and iPhone and each time had to have the volume on max to get a decent sound out of them. I even found my nocs ns400 in ear phones to provide a better sound than the 550's and they have no volume problem either.
I see the grado 80i seems to be popular, would i be better off with those? sound leakage is not an issue as they'll be strictly for at home use. i listen to almost entirely electronic music, mostly of the 'IDM' genre (aphex twin, boards of canada etc).
i understand that at this price i cant have everything, but surely you can get better volume and bass than the 550's provide.
