I live in a very humid country.
I NEED to use closed backs because small house, play in the night, etc.
Leather pads and stuff really really make my ear very uncomfortable.
My budget is 500usd, but I am down to hear every single suggestion.
I know velour closed backs don’t really exist, so I am down to mod with velour replacements, but I don’t know many headphones that still sound good after replacing.
I listen to pop songs.
I’ve tried Sony MDR7506 with DT250 velour pads. Pads were abit too shallow. Sounded abit too flat to me, I prefer something more “fun”.
I’ve also tried DT177X GO. Loved the sound, my favourite. But looking for cheaper options.
I would love to own HD820s, I’ve tried them out before but they are too expensive. These would be my ideal headphones.
I also would like to try NDH20. Looks good, but looking for cheaper options.
