After consideration in my previous posts (budget and brand wise) I decided to go for the Audio Technica headphones. As I explained I can't get the much appreciated AD700 because in Bulgaria they cost 250 USD. So, I am between the below models:
They have 10-20 dollars difference in the price over here. the AD300 being the most expensive. Nevertheless, I am leaning more towards them although they have been discontinued. Althought the M30s have the cool 3.5mm jack with metal before it and a protective wrap around the cord which i find useful. I know that there are not many people around here with these models but I would be grateful for a tip or two regarding which one to choose. I would like to try an open-backed can as I would like to get a little bit of soundstage, since I will be using them for gaming (mainly) and music (not that much since I listen from my speakers more).
As mentioned before I use a DIY headphone amp/dac connected to the PC via USB. I listen to FLAC and 320Kbps.
Thanks in advance.
hey, guys just to bump this post again. i am thinking of getting a antlion modmic - http://www.modmic.com/collections/frontpage/products/modmic. this thing attaches to any headphone making it perfect for gaming when u need to speak. i read that the quality is also very good. i am worried though that if i go for the on-ear AD300, the noise leak might hit the mic as well.
