OK, so just by reading the topic subject line, many of you are thinking that I have no clue what I'm looking for. And you're right, I kinda don't, so hoping some of you can help.
What I want is a solid pair of headphones that I can use as monitors mostly and also for casual listening. Yes, I also have 3 other pairs of actual reference monitors, so this won't be my main listening device, just something to use with relatively precise sound while I'm working on music. Most of the music I'll be working on will be electronica - downtempo, some ambient dnb, + house.
A little coloration on the headphones is not a problem - I can always fine tune via my other speakers. What I AM looking for is, of course, quality sound and comfort. I also realize that I'll have to buy a separate amp for the headphones, which I will do as well.
So, I suppose my main questions are - is worth it for me to save up a bit longer and invest in HD800 or PS1000? or would the ATH W5000 or AD2000 suffice? Open or closed?
Unfortunately, where I live my opportunity to actually go and listen to any of these headsets is close to none. Some the places that I called had no clue what I was talking about. I have had change to listen to my friend's WD1000 and they sound great, but I know there are, of course, better headphones out there.
Any suggestions or reviews would be lovely.
Thanks in advance!
