I just joined here because I am in need of some new headphones and it seems as if you guys have good advice.
I want over-ear headphones, that are closed back, because I don't want sound to be leaking in and out. I want something that has a nice crisp sound, and not to much bass or treble, just a nice even balance. I mostly listen to classic rock, ocassianally, some more metal stuff like Metallica or Pantera.
I will primarily use these for just listening to, so they don't need to be portable. I also have plenty or amps for speakers, but I plan on buying a FiiO e6 mini-amp for use with my iPod. I also play the drums and plan to record them some day.
So far I have narrowed it down to these 4 headphones
-AKG K271 MKII
-Sennheiser HD 558
-Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (80 or 250 ohm?)
My price range is probably about $250
Any help would be appreciated.
