What headphones should I get?

I am looking for a headphone with either a V shaped sound signature or either a warm sounding ones. My budget is less then 1500USD which I plan on using for the headphones and a new DAC/AMP to go with it as for now my only gear were the Shiit fulla 2 paired with the Fidelio X2 and AKG 7XX .I listen to mostly modern music with hip hop, EDM of different types like house and trap, a few rock n roll.

Another 2 cents!

The truth is, I haven't listened to music or anything else through headphones in decades. Just not my thing. I also don't much care for "a V shaped sound signature". My preference is and has always been for listening to music flat out or, in other words, as accurate and faithful to what's on the recording(s) as possible without sounding too accurate or too sterile. So, a little warmth would be OK. IMHO, tone controls exist only to correct poor recordings and/or tailor sound to individual preferences. Be that as it may, I do occasionally pick up various headphones on display for demo purposes in stores & shops that I visit just to keep up with the latest stuff. There are, obviously, a plethora of fine choices out there to suit everyone's tastes. The best advice anyone can give you is to go hear a bunch on equipment as similar to your own as possible. Your ears will tell you what sounds best to you. As for my ears, I've always much preferred Seenheiser.
