Hey there, I'm in need of a recommendation before purchase.
After the bit of time spent reading around here, it seems that the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro (250 Ohm) seems to be the most recommended set of cans for me (although haven't decided on the amp). I based this decision off of my budget and what I'm looking for in my new headphones. I listen to a lot of house, progressive house, trance, electro-house style Electronic Dance Music (EDM), but I still like my bass to have a nice "umph" without being too overwhelming. I'd be using the headphones 99% of the time at home, so I'm not worried about sound leaking in/out as I close my door anyway, and am not looking for a portable amp (unless they perform better than a standalone). I also had to factor in budget as well, and I didn't want to spend too much; mostly in the range of $250-300 area with headphones & amp included. After further research, I've come across the conclusion that I'll probably need to look into investing in a sound card also as my current one (Creative Audigy ZS 2) isn't what I thought it to be.
I've never had a real set of 'audiophile' worthy headphones, only typical gamer headsets such as the Logitech G35 which doesn't perform exactly to my expectations. I'm really hoping I'll be able to find what I'm looking for without losing too much. I know with my budget I'll be sacrificing some of the sound, but that's expected.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed a little light on my situation!
