Hey guys, like alot of people I've been lurking the forums for a long time so I have learned alot from you guys but still would like an opinion. I'm looking for my first high end headphones, I've been using earbuds around 50 dollars for a long time so I don't favour or hate any particular brands. Heres some info that might help.
I listen to pretty much everything, 40% dubstep/electronica, 20% rock, 20% rap 20% everything else, so I guess I'm looking for a pretty all around set of headphones. I also do some gaming here and there but thats not a priority at all.
Open Or Closed:
I'd perfer open headphones, maybe semi-open but from what I know those aren't very common.
The source is most likely going to be out of a Xonar Essence STX which I have yet to buy so if any of you would recommend a small desktop amp for about $200 I would take that into consideration instead.
I would like to keep it below $300 maybe up to about $350.
This isn't an issue for me at all because I'm always going to be using them at home.
I would also like these headphones to be pretty comfortable because I spend a pretty long time listening to music.
I also need these headphones too be pretty durable, they won't be going through any sort of abuse or anything but I'll probably use them for the next 3-4 years.
Thanks in advance to anyone who helps.
