Hey All, I’m looking for a set of headphones because my kph30i gave up on me. I mostly listen to ambient like Jon Hopkins’ Music for psychedelic therapy and here’s what I like, or would like.
Open back, dynamic (don’t like linear planar bass), warm and natural, airy headphones (or earbuds). Preferably around 100 or lower.
I don’t need subbass and I’m not a basshead, 30is and Tin T2s are plenty bassy for me. I’m not a detail freak either although I’d like to have at least some detail retrieval.
What I am after though is a natural, transparent timbre. Good, immersive soundstage and imaging (doesn’t have to be huge). Warmth and a sense of lightness, air are important.
Any tips? SHP? Grado? 58x? ksc75? A-T ad series?
