Seriously at the "exactly" 100 rangeand not a penny more, I'd say superlux + ModMic or SHP 9500 and either the boompro or ModMic (boompro is not compatible with the 668).
Or keep it simple and go for the clouds. They're good enough for what you are after.
Now as to why "experts" don't agree on audio is because its not like a graphics card.
Oh you can benchmark audio, don't get me wrong, but there are 2 extra factors at work that screw it all up.
1) we all hear differently. Like, there are sounds I may hear more acutely than you, or even sounds you can hear that I literally can not.
2) On top of that there are sounds I may not like, even though I can hear them better. For instance some people hate sound signatures that are heavy on treble. No matter how well the treble benchmarks they'll hate headphones that are treble heavy.
I always compare it to wine. What's the best wine? The one you like of course!
So I'm gonna guess that the SHP9500 are the better headphones of the two, right? I think
I've made my decision. I'm gonna go with headphones and one of those mics for sure, but I have one more question. What kind of sound does the SHP9500 produce?
I was reading this guide here
to see if some info about the aforementioned headphones was on it. What caught my eye were the "neutral" ones. I was interested in this because, I thought, that if I listened to a pair that was balanced overall, I might be able to figure out later on what I prefer most in headphones. I don't listen to any kind of music in particular, either; rather, lots of different genres.
So if those balanced like it says the Superlux 668's are, then I'll get those and the cheaper mic. If not, the 668's and the ModMic it is. ^_^
