So a while back I needed new headphones as my old one's were broken (Koss Pro4AAT) but I managed to get them fixed for free and kept on using them. Now I'm finally able to afford new one's and been researching a lot and it looks like I'm having a battle with the HFI-580 vs HFI-780.
Problem here is, the price difference is a whopping 50€ (580 137€, 780 187€) and there's hardly any direct comparison between these 2 cans. All I hear the 580 seems to have more bass, and the 780 reaches higher frequencies, but what about the overall SQ, is the 780 considerably better? Enough to warrant that price difference, especially considering future-proofing if it does indeed have better SQ(?)?
90% of my music is goa/psytrance/trance, but I do quite enthusiastically enjoy certain movie/game soundtracks(Hans Zimmer, Jesper Kyd to name a few) as well.
Going to be running it off of Asus Xonar ST soundcard.
Thanks a lot for your help.
