I'm looking for a headphone that can play most genres of music as I listen to pretty much everything, but with an emphasis on hip hop and rock. I do play a lot of games(mostly shooters) but performance with music is more important.
Will be used from my stationary computer. I'm gonna buy a sound card but would prefer not to have to buy an amp as well, so no 600 Ohm stuff please :D
I've been contemplating getting the Sennheiser HD558(The 598 costs a lot more over here so I guess the difference between them isn't worth the $50?) but I've seen a lot of people saying the bass is too bad for hip hop in the HD558. Are there any headphones similar to those but with better bass or will the 558's be fine for hiphop?
Dont be afraid to recommend closed phones either!
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Should add that my budget is around the $150-$200 mark. Prices are a bit different here though.
