Hey, y'all!

I'm a newb here and I wanted to learn more about awesome headphones and upgrading from my Panasonic RP HTX7.


At my local music-gear store they have a pair of AKG K77 and AKG K99.  The K77 is closed-back and the K99 is open-back.  


I know these aren't the greatest headphones out there, and I'd really like to purchase one of these two headphones as they are both readily available to me.  I like to listen to a wide range of genres simply from my Macbook.  I've learned a bit during my lurking of this forum, like the lower ohm rating, the easier it is to drive.


I'm probably going to purchase a pair of more advanced headphones in the future as I slowly become an audiophile, but for now I really want one of these AKGs.  I've been reading mixed reviews about the K99 and nothing but good ones for the K77. 


Sorry for the long first post/thread!
