I am looking for (over-ear, not in-ear) headphones (less than 200). I listen to electronic ambient music and therefore need:

1. A big open spacious sound
2. The ability to handle ultra-deep bass with depth, precision and clarity and without boominess.

At present I have Sennheiser HD555 which give a nice natural sound, reasonably open and spacious but certainly could be a lot better, and dont handle the ultra deep bass. Also, Sennheiser HD380 Pro which handle ultra-deep bass quite well (and have very sharp treble), but have a poor mid-range and sound rather nasal and compressed.

Any advice appreciated.

The only contender for Ambient music would be AKG K 701 Headphones with Ear Hook and if you don't mind them in white you can have them for the knock down price of 199. Without doubt built with you in mind!

They are all about a wide, open soundstage. I promise you no other headphone offers such width.
The precision is so detailed that people have complained about being able to hear the musicians muttering in the distance!
Again, they fit the bill when it comes to handling deep bass. One of the slight complaints they have faced come from 'Classical Music' listeners who feel that the bass response has been enhanced very slightly at the expense of the mid-range. Something that won't trouble you at all.

I would definitely give them a test drive. I don't think you will find a more suitable headphone for such an affordable price.

Hope this helps

Serena, are you asking where you can buy in-ear monitors for wearing on stage? Your grasp of English leaves me unsure but I think this is what you mean. If so go to:

Many companies make them including Logitec and Sony but I'm not sure if you want a basic ambient sound plug or wether you want a powered monitor with built in drivers.
