Looking for some help from the experts here -- I think I have narrowed it down to a couple of options, but I am not sure that there is one headphone that can do all I want it to. Actually, I am sure there isn't, but I am not sure which one I should start with.
My listening habbits:
Music is a total crap shoot depending on my mood, everything from classical to rap (probably the most is top 40, country and classic rock).
I also watch a lot of movies on airplanes and would like them to support pc/xbox gaming through my Astro MixAmp
Sources - Music is iPhone on the road and computer or squeezebox at home, movies will be primarily from my ipad, and gaming will be exclusively through the Astro Mixamp for Dolby Headphone.
I am currently using Shure E3Cs most of the time and Brainwavz M4 when I think I might be getting phone calls. I like the Shure's quite a bit, but am looking to branch out into some cans vs. iem.
I had originally planned on getting some 558s based on the rave reviews from the gaming world, but I am sure the open design will make them unusable for a lot of my listening, so I am now looking at HD 25-1 II and the MS 400 Moderna. I love the idea of ANC and the microphone/push button cable of the Beats Pro, but I am willing to give up those options for better headphones. Budget is comfortable up to $200 and can go up to $300 with a little bit of "boss" convincing.
Can the HD-25s or MS-400s be a jack of all trades like I am looking for, or is there something else that I should consider, maybe even an option with the bells and whistles of the Beats, but the quality of the Sennheiser or Phiaton? I am not opposed to a headphone/amp combo, but would still like to stay in the same price range.
Thanks for the help!
