Alright, so I have had the M50s for a couple years now and I love the sound. While in my Audio Engineering class, however, my friend let me listen to his Denon AH-D5000 and I was blown away. One of the first differences I noticed right off the bat is how open they sounded (duh, they are open back headphones). So I have been looking around and have decided I want something either open or semi-open.
I am trying to stay under $300, which saddens me because now I just really want the D5000, but can't afford them at the moment. That being said here is a list of possibles I have come up with.
Denon AH-D2000 (to stay around $300)
Sennheiser HD598 (although I don't like the 1/4" jack)
Beyerdynamic DT 880 (600 ohm version)
Basically, I just want something comfortable that will completely cover my ears.
I should also mention that I have a PA2V2, so driving these headphones won't be a problem.
Please give me some feedback and let me know if there are any other cans I should be looking into.
