I produce dance and techno music in a home studio. I have nice monitors but I need some headphones to work with since I live in apartment and can't really crank a lot of bass for any extended period of time.
From a lot of Googling I've narrowed it to the DT880, HD 650, or AKG K701 (I am willing to spend $250 - $400 but nothing crazy like $1k or more).
I don't need these for DJ'ing necessarily, just music production where I will be working with all manner of bass (electronic kicks, sub bass, etc..) and highs.
Also, I have an M-Audio Fast Track Pro sound card with a 1/4" headphone jack. Would this be considered a headphone amp or would I need another device to properly power the headphones?
Hopefully I can get a decisive answer and not 1000 opinions but I appreciate any thoughts :)
