    I´m looking for a complement to my current headphones Sennheiser HD595. The phones will be plugged into an ASUS Xonar Essence ST (HTPC) and used for music/movies. The main reason I´m looking for a complement to the HD595 is simply the lack of bass. Something to use when listening to house/dance or simply watching Transformers.

    Closed or open doesn´t really matter, I just want them to be comfortable. My current ones really excel in that aspect atleast. But I do want them to sit around the ears, the ones that sit on top of the ears aren´t that great to wear for longer periods in my subjective opinion.

    Budget would be from HD595 (I bought them for around 150 euro two years ago and they´re still in that area even now) and up to around 300.

    Sennheiser HD595 compliment

    I'd go for a closed back pair of headphones, as this generally enhances bass response.

    The Beyerdynamic DT770 or Audio-Technica ATH-M50 would both be excellent choices (also currently our two best sellers).
