man, it's all about the kind of music you listen to. Me, i listen to tons of dubstep, so cans with recessed mids and a big down low sound with nice treble are ideal. There is no perfectly neutral headphone, and even if their was it would probably be no fun. Find the cans that best suite your musical needs and buy them.
im actually having a tough time picking out my next set of cans. i listen to alot of indie/alternative. bands like cake, someone still loves you boris yeltsin, islands, the unicorns, coconut records, the postal service, death cab, etc. and some traditional folk/irish music.
but i also listen to a fair amount of metal. like as blood runs black, four year strong, a day to remember, and set your goals. and some more indie/pop type bands like passion pit and discovery.
so i need more of a do everything headphone. my source is a macbook pro with itunes and bitperfect playing apple lossless into a dac. and my current amp is a millets starving student. also im in the process of building a soha II so i should be able to drive most headphones.
im stuck between
sennheiser hd600 or hd650
beyerdynamic dt880 600ohm
i want a fun sounding can that has great detail, a good amount of bass that doesnt take away from warm mids, and obviously good highs.
right now i have a pair of hd555's. im not dead set on any of the headphones listed above, but i dont want to go to far over 300$.
what should i get?
