first of all i want to apologize for my bad english and about my "nubiness" i'm totally green about audio gear.
I want to buy my first set of good headphones, they need to be closed ones because i don't want to disturb my wife and i need to block some noise from place where i live, i will plug them in into my Xonar D1 and my cowon D2, i'm not own any amp yet i will buy one in next 2-3 months but i will be pleased if headphones can be driven without it too.
I'm listen good mix of music ( i will list some of my favored bands ;) ) Nightwish, Within temptation, Dido, Sarah McLachlan, Alicia Keys, Katie Melua, Delain, Entwined, Linkin Park, loreena McKennit and list go on i'm open for others too, sadly this makes my choice even more difficult.
My budget is around 170-180 EURO ( It will be around 200-230$ but prices are a bit diffrent in Europe ) i'm not a big bass perosn i love to hear vocals and feel to be close to stage ( i hope you know what i mean ) i will use headphones also for gaming but mnusic its my primary goal, i will spend in them 5-6 hours in week and more in weekends so they need to be comfortable, atm i'm choosing betwen.
AKG 271 MK II
Beyerdynamic DT770 pro 80
Atm i'm won "great" for gamers headphones Steelseries Siberia so any headphones will be upgrade for me and for my cowon D2Sennheiser cx300.
I will appreciate any help form you guys, i'm sadly can't go to store and listen to any fo them my closest one is about 8hours from place where i live :/
I'm read few guids on the net about how to choose headphones and ask few shops but because of this i'm now confused so much and i really don't know what to choose :/
