Looking to pick up my first set of decent-good cans. Need some advice. I started this thread b/c I don't feel the main 'recommendation' thread gets that much attention.
Music genres: I'd say 5% hiphop, 80% classic rock, 15% other.
Portable: No, only at the computer/tv.
Price range: $100'ish
Amped: Someday I'm sure it's going to happen but immediately now, no.
Closed/Open: Ideally would prefer closed but I won't completely say no to open. It would have to be a hell of a can to deter me from closed but I guess I'm semi open to it. I've heard good things on grado 225 for for rock, classical, and vocals.
Headphone preference: I love a good soundstage. It's not an elite setup if the stage is setup properly if you ask me. I don't require the speakers to be too neutral or anything. I'm looking for the purest experience where I feel like the band is playing right in front of me.
Only thing to add in is that the headphones will probably be used for a lot of movies too. Potentially a couple games but that's very minimal. A long straight cord would be a plus. I do have a creative audigy sound card on my computer, not sure if that provides me with more power or not.
