This is my first post to the Head-Fi forums, and I've been a lurker for only a week, so tell me if I'm doing something blatantly wrong
First off, these are the cans that I've been looking at. My maximum price to pay is around $220 and these fall under that mark.
- Ultrasone Pro 550
- Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro
- Audio Technica ATH-M50
- Audio Technica A700x
- Shure SRH840
- Sony MDR-7506/V6
These seem like decent headphones to me, but I've never heard any of them besides my friend's MDR-7506's which I enjoyed quite a bit. I'm looking for headphones that will have a strong bass for listening to dubstep/DnB/Electronica, but not overwhelming. Clear mid-ranges,treble, and all else is important to me too. I will be using these for gaming and music enjoyment if that helps any. Hearing footsteps in a shooter is definitely a must-have for me. Also, these headphones must be able to be driven by my laptop and andriod. I would prefer NOT to pay for an external amplifier.
I am open to anything you guys have to say and if you know of an awesome pair of headphones that isn't on the list: TELL ME. I want to make sure I'm getting the best pair for my money.
Side-Note: I've been considering Sennheiser HD 280 PROs, but I heard they have mushy sound with weak bass. I figured that pair might come up in discussion.
