im looking to buy headphones for fps games(66.6%) and rock music(33,3%)
budget around 100 usd, but i can stretch to 150 if it's "must"
i listen large range of rock, from hendrix to rhcp, some "metal" like iron maiden and sometimes i like ska
prefer clear sound over bassy
but i dont want bass anemic HP like ad700 cuz bass guitar from steve harris/flea make me cower
i know that i need to sacrifice some bass to get Soundstage/Positional accuracy/Detail retrieval
i would like very very much that i dont need to have amp
(have xonar dx and they will used from time to time on mp3 player)
closed type will be bonus BUT not necessary
they will be used like 90% inside, and for other 10% i dont care how i look or ...
i live in croatia and my choice is kinda limited and they dont let me test them to hear ...
can buy from ebay if they are willing to ship
im audio.... noob, but i did some research, looks like :
ad 700 -great for gaming but suck at rock
SR80i great for rock but suck at gaming
if we set score: bad, ok, good, verygood, great
i want headphones that are : verygood for fps/good for rock
(i can make some compromise if needed and put music to ok sound)
looks like KRK 6400 should be verygood for fps games
100 usd, dont need amp, closed/portable
but how they sound for rock music?
any other good headphones for my needs?
thx for your time
