Great forum, but boy is it hard to make any decisions with so much information to hand :)
Im trying to get my hands on some headphones for movies, music and games. Roughly in that order. I read one review of the Ps1000s saying they were amazing for detail and they're somewhat akin to full speakers costing more than 5 times the price, so I was really interested in these for films. The same review though did mention that compared to others like the Ultrasone edtion 8, the ps1000s lacked a good punch of bass so thats where the confusion lies.
Do you recon for movies like Saving Private Ryan or Aliens where a thunderous sound is at the forfront of attention, is it better to spend a bit more and get a good headphone amp for the ps1000s or should I go for the Ultrasone 8s? Are they better suited?
On the music side of things I love listening to Tangerine Dream type synthesizer music, but also pumping bass heavy hiphop tracks so I do like the idea of more detail but would also really appreciate a good kick of bass.
Ive thought alot about both but now I really dont know where to land. Both seam to have amazing sound detail but I honesntly I dont know which would suit me better.
