Over Ear Open Back - laws of diminishing return price point?
Hi all, been away from the community here for quite a while, love my system as is and haven't found any need to upgrade or change things for a while now which is weird a. f. for me ..
Getting the itch to try some high quality over ear headphones because of recent move to a townhouse where I can't crank my tunes.
I have a a pair of Shure SRH840's which are okay, but get uncomfortable after a relatively short period of time, and really the sound doesn't invite me to use them very often.
Having very little knowledge of today's headphone world, I thought I'd come back to my old stomping grounds for advice.
A quick review of some buying guides leads me to the over ear open back style for my "needs".
My audio component experience has been that there is always a price point where the laws of diminishing returns kicks in, where the more you spend the less improvements you get.
So I'm curious to if that applies to headphones, where you think that price point is and of course what recommendations might suit my needs in that sweet spot?
My music taste cover a wide variety of genres, and I do have a lot of high-rez music.
