For rock and stuff, a Grado would be great (emphasis on mids, light on bass, comfort can be uncomfrtable but can be fixed with bowl earpads), for all-rounder the DT880 (particularly 600 ohm), for bass oriented, the Denon D5000....
The Ultrasone PRO750 is a bass oriented headphone as well but not extra heavy on the bass.
If you don't require portability / small form factor on the source, it really changes things tbh.
I do not. The stuff won't move from my computer area.
Also besides being a pain to drive, I don't see what's wrong with them. Every set of open back cans I've owned has been light on bass, that's just the nature of them, and I enjoy their character.

But how are you going to connect it? Your forte only offers the digi coaxial out that you can connect a all in one dac/amp to, not an amp only unbalanced out.
That's what I'm asking you guys lol...so I guess I need an all in one DAC/amp? What should I look for?
