This is my second post here (complete n00b), and since the first one didn't get any responses in the topic that i wrote it in, i decided to create a new thread; i would really appreciate you helping me decide which headphone to get .
Right now i own a panasonic rp-htx7,
I listen mostly to electronica stuff like Tipper, Aphex Twin, Kraftwerk. > http://soundcloud.com/tippermusic
Rock and "math-rock" like 90 Day Men, Battles, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs. > http://soundcloud.com/southern/90-day-men-too-late-or-too
And some Post-hardcore, grind, etc. and every now and then some jazz and classical.
My two options as you can see are the 439s ($115) and the 750djs ($100). I am ordering online and i am not from the u.s. so my options are limited since other headphones go way beyond my budget since they are imported. I have also seen the m50s at $150.
I lean toward the shure's, my only concern is the comfort. My brother's got beat solo and i can only wear them for an hour before i get tired (plus i do not enjoy the sound they produce).
The 439 definitely look better and seem to be more comfy, i worry about the bass though (specially with Tipper).
How much of a difference will these make from the panasonic's?
Are they hard to drive? I'd prefer not to get an amp right away, so that's important too.
