Whenever recommending at this price point, I almost always go with the Sennheiser 650s or the 6xxs here at Drop. I compare them to Johnny Walker Blue Label for any scotch drinker. There are some people who might want more character out of their scotch, like a bit more peet that the Islays have. But Blue Label is simply pure. There's nothing unique about it, but there are also no impurities, no strange flavors, it's the baseline for what a scotch should be.
