In the interest of saving money I was wondering what pair of headphones one would sugguest for under 150$ (Manufacturer refurb/B stock is not an issue for me as well as headphone modding). Also I'm not afraid of IEM models though I've no idea what I would be getting for 150 or less
What I need from the headphones:
Bass:I listen to lots of dubstep/EDM
Durability:I can be careless at times I'd like for them to survive a bit of wear and tear.
Comfort: with low profile glasses 8~ hour sessions
These will be used on my computer with a soundcard (probably with a Xonar_dg Asus soundcard)
I live in the CONUS
I'm Currently considering:
ATH-m50's 120 refurb (Lots of mixed reviews here people saying they're not worth 100$+)
ATH A700 120$ Amazon
DT 770's 179$ (Can't find them for cheap they seem to be my leading choice)
HD 558's 100$ "modded to 598's".
What I'd like from you:
Thoughts on the abovre headphones/reccomendations where to find refurbed/underwarranty DT 777's as they seem to be leading the pack for me.
Reccommendations on a good soundcard under 30$ (I know there aren/t many choices)
What I would be gaining/losing from buying a pair of IEMs in the 150$ or less pricerange
