Sorry for bringing up an old topic, but I've been struggling to find a similar topic with a poster that listens to all the music that I do.
Anyways, I've done a ton of research on the two headphones, but I still can't choose between the two. The one thing I really like about the Beyerdynamics is that they are just so damn comfortable. That being said, it seems like some people think the Audiotechnicas are more versatile. I won't be running this through an amp, so that's pretty important. As for the music I listen to, it really does cover just about anything. I listen to rock (especially a lot of prog, post-rock, and instrumental rock), hip-hop, R&B, dubstep, house, other electronic music, jazz, funk, Latin jazz, reggae, blues, Afro-Cuban, dub, music from India, classical, soundtracks (both videogames and film), etc. The only genres I don't frequent are Metal and Country. I'll probably use them a bit for watching movies and maybe a little bit of gaming as well.
Oh yeah, I also already own a pair of Sennheiser HD280. I thought that should be put into consideration as well.
Thanks for the input everyone! I hope I'm not sounding like a completely broken record.
