Headphones for 250GBP?

Sent back my DT990 PRO’s, the cable drove me mad and I’m not a huge fan of that ‘V’ sound signature, am now looking to spend a little more and have something nicer.

I’m currently looking at the Hifiman HE-400S, also considering waiting an extra week and getting the HE-400i’s

Anyone either had either of those or can recommend anything better that’s open back?

Using a Focusrite Scarlett at the moment, drove my 250ohm 990’s fine.

Thanks, am lost in all this audio stuff

I own a pair of AKG K712 Pro and I can’t recommend them enough. Although bass is kinda tame, the entire rest of the spectrum is great. Soundstage is wide open. They are much more comfortable than the DT990s as well.

Looks like Amazon.co.uk has them for a good price as well.

Here’s a review:

The Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX are also really nice headphones, absolutely amazing for US$200, but good luck getting them anytime soon.
