What model are they releasing soon?

The MDR-Z7. But it's a Semi-open vented HP, don't think it would perform well as a portable

Hi SIFUs, wanting to venture a little bit into the audiophile world but don't know where to start. Can anyone give me suggestions for a decent headphone with infos as below?

Rig - Planning to get a portable music player. Now listening on PC and iPhone. Recommend for a newbie as well with budget no more than RM1k
Usage - Music
File format - FLAC or DAC (Not sure if DAC is the higher format for FLAC)
Genre of music - Jazz, Pop, Vocal

Headphone - Please recommend
Budget - Around the price of a Beats Studio v2. RM1200-ish? Beats are overpriced IMO so...
Other requirements - Over ear with sound isolation. Bass with crisp vocal capability. Best if there is something that acts as a mute button like the Beats Studio v2 has.
*
Sony MDR-1R for half the price. I think someone mentioned a sale going on for about 650+. It's meant for portableuse, very comfortable and is a very fun pair of headphones

Source: Galaxy S4, Asus N56 laptop
Music type: Instrumental, jazz, vocal
File type: Mostly FLAC.
Type: IEM, good isolation is an extra bonus as I frequently travel by small aircraft which has loud engine noise
Budget : 700

Tried FAD Heaven II and I like it, any other suggestions? Read of good comments about TDK BA 200 and GR07, any recommendations regarding these 3 models or perhaps other suitable one? Thanks

How much does it cost, roughly?
*
Around 680. For the price, they perform really well for almost all genres that I care to test them with.

E1 in Sungai Wang has them on demo

Even with taxes it won't be 600+. I'll have to lug my gear over to test it sometime this week. Impressions sound promising

I'm not an audiophile, only listen to spotify. but Shiat..... MDR-Z7, now I'm in love already, the design itself made you fall at first sight. Seem this is the right track. Anyway, I've always wanted to own Beats PRO Infinite Black, loved the color and design (Extra RM250 for the color  sweat.gif  ). But almost all the reviews said, it's not the best bang for your bucks. Almost everything about it is exaggerated especially the bass  rclxub.gif  This true? Anyone here own it?

That is true. Only one I would recommend would be the Beats Studio due to the premium materials used and it's decent SQ, but for that price I'd rather get the Sennheiser Urbanite XL.
