Hey Everyone, long time browser here :)
So I'm looking to buy myself a set of headphones after moving my main sound system around to work better with my tv it is now completly out of place in relation to my PC which isn't ideal for music or gaming or well anything, was hoping I could get some recommendations from people who know a lot more on this topic then me.
really I'm looking for a good all rounder but I expect that is hard to find so the most important aspect in buying some is for music, closely followed by gaming then not so importantly TV and movies etc
my budget firstly is around £125 which is about $200 for Americans :), after researching though it looks like its nearly a 1:1 ratio price wise :(, my music tastes are fairly wide, mostly listen to Metal (nearly every sub genre but a lot of power metal and thrash quite a bit death and black but listen to many others fairly often too :p), I also listen to loads and loads of rock , a lot of 80's glam rock, hair metal, a lot of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple that kind of earlier stuff as well as Meat Loaf and pop rock and lots of hard rock and alternative and grunge , basically a wide taste in rock :p, those two are probs what I mainly listen to but I still listen to a lot of other music, including ska, reggae, punk, pop music, a tiny bit of rap and other music, and nearly no classical though I listen to a lot of symphonic metal so a set that could handle it would be quite nice, I prefer to have more bass then not enough, and really I probs like more bass then is ideal, I like that kind of punchy thumpy bass that you can actually feel during a bass guitar or a drum solo so yeah quite a lot of bass I guess :p, I do like a detailed sound though for power metal and rock so a bass that doesn't smear all over everything is quite important, listening to power metal when it is just muddy isn't nice, I like a somewhat true to source sound but really prefer more a sound then is fun/nice and good to listen to as well
I will also use them quite a lot for gaming and tv/movies and everything else so anything that could do a somewhat decent job with those would be good.
haha sorry this is beginning to sound like I'm trying to buy a set that is perfect for everything :p
oh and I would prefer closed rather then open if I happen to be in a noisy enviroment and situations like that
anything else I should mention/you need?
thanks for any advice anyone :)
Beyer Dynamic DT770 PRO
Audio Technica A900X (sale, or used)
Ultrasone PRO 650
Denon D2000 (used)
could anyone help me narrow this down or offer any more suggestions please?, I'm completly stuck :p, so far after hours of reading reviews and that if i had to say I was leaning towards any it would be one of the Sennheisers, one of the the Denons or the DT770's or maybe the Ultrasone 650's but that might be completley wrong, I can't get the A900x so that hasn't been looked at, but to be honest I'm totally overwhelmed at the moment and have no idea :p, for my listening habits as detailed above, it would be easier if I had any stores near me where I could try them but i don't, so basically I'm hoping for a few more sources of opinions and advice, sorry I'm totally new to over ear headphones :p
thanks anyone who replies :)
