I'm pretty new to all this technology and i'm looking at upgrading to a new pair of headphones.
My current headset is the logitech G35, since these were my first i really LOVED them, i loved the sound quality, and the bass (since i really like alot of bass) and the comfort.
But that is probably because i was always used to speakers.
My G35 eventually broke after 2 years (3 - 16 hour a day gaming/music sessions)
So i was reading lots of forums with people asking simular questions but i can't come to a conclusion of what headphone i prefer.
My budget is 300 euro's (around $440) i currently don't own an amp.
I would really like some really good sounding headphones (since many people say the headphones have better sound quality then headsets)
My music preference is
metal (parkway drive, bullet for my valentine, blinded colony, of mice&men)
Dubstep (not the slow ones)
Watching movies is also a daily routine.
Since i live in a pretty isolated room i don't really care about open or closed headphones unless there is a big difference in sound quality.
I was thinking about the Sennheiser pc350 headset since many people said the sound quality was superb untill i noticed the lack of bass.
The Audio technica AD700's seem to be pretty nice
and the Sennheiser 555's to.
Or the more expensive ones like
AKG K701, Grado SR-225 or the Denon AH-D2000
My personal preference untill now goes to Denon AH-D2000 due to the nice bass and sound quality.
Many people say it doesn't really require an amp.
I can buy them for £170 (that's 190 euro's)
I'm using a on-board pc soundcard (probably crap) without an amp so that's where i'm stuck.
The headphones will only be used in-doors
What headphone fits my music/movie preference, and does it require a new soundcard or an amp?
