Lots of threads her about what's the best phones for this and that music. I'm looking for headphones mostly for moviewatching. At the moment I have come down to two phones in the lower pricerange:
Sennheiser HD 555
Sennheiser because they are somewhat nicely priced, people say they are super-duper comfy and has, of course, great sound for the money. But I have heard they lack somewhat in bass.
DT770 are showing up in almost every thread I read and they also look like they can be used trough the extended Lord of the rings trilogy whitout crushing my skull or (hopefully) cooking my ears. One of the most importent things with this ones is powerfull, fast bass. They are a bit more pricey than 555. Thinking of the 32 ohm version. Are they worth the extra cash for my use?
This are not phones that will be my prime soundsource for years to come. I'm just stcuk in an enviroment for 4 months where I must use headphones. Home I have speakers and dont use headphones. Right now I'm using Portapro's. Great sound in this too, but lacking in skullratling bass. I guess moving up to either of the above phones will be significantly better? I'm of course not just looking for bass. Good overall sound is importent too.
This will be connected to my computer and Asus Xonar DX soundcard.
