I am going to upgrade my headphones from Senn HD 280 pros.
I listen to just about all music types, except rap and most new country music.
I enjoy rock but am not a rockoholic.
I would rather the phones excel at acoustical instruments than electric if given and either our choice. Heavy bass is not my target, but accurate bass tones are .
I live 2 hrs from any shop where I could listen to these two HP, so will base my deccision on others experences with both.
The headphones will be used on a PC, I have no portable devices.
I do have a Nuforce Icon Udac 2 connected to my PC.
I could, if needed, purchase a amp if the Beyers need one, so not having ample amplification is not a problem.
I have lurked around here, as well as other sites, for a month narrowing my choices down.
The DT 990 pro's and HD 598's sound like what I would enjoy ( for the cost )
