So after being a lurker here since what seems like forever, soaking in all the info I could, I'm committing myself to finally get a good set cans.
Looking for a closed set which would serve a couple of purposes.
First, I'm a student studying digital media- sound is a big part of it, so a good 'reference' headphone would be an absolute pleasure.
However, I also play guitar, and due to a very hectic schedule I'm on for most of the year, guitar time is often later on in the evening (i.e. night), so an open set is out of the question, sadly =(
On top of that, a set which could be used for some listening would also be quite nice. Not looking for a huge bass emphasis, but something that can handle metal quite nicely, and at the same time be 'reference' enough to facilitate mixing and nitpicking, is the best I can do to express it in words. Nitpicking comes first, musical pleasure comes second.
So I'm thinking that maybe the DT-48 can wait for a little while. What would you guys suggest? DT220? Maybe a set of woodies (D5000, Thunderpants?) or D2000 maybe? M50?
Driving these anywhere is a huge bonus, but I'm not afraid of a transportable amp- not planning to do any listening outside anyway.
Also, if you think IEMs are a better bet for me, please let me know.
I know you guys know your stuff, and I'm all ears. =D
