Hey there. I'm relatively new to the headphone scene and currently looking for an upgrade to my $45 ebay XB500's. What I'm looking for is good, punchy bass that wont rattle at certain frequencies (like my sony's are doing). I listen to everything from classical to Dubstep/Trance and frequently gaming, but mostly I'm looking for great bass and clarity. My XB500's are great for bass but like I said, they rattle... and the bass is just about the only thing they offer.
I can get my hands on a pair of the SRH750dj's at a local electronics specialty store for $95 on-sale, or the DN HP1000's from some guy who claims they were "used very lightly", for $100 cash.
I know they're both DJ headphones, but they'll rarely leave the computer desk. I am currently interested in Producing so the range is a must. And should I possibly look into a good headphone amp if I but these? I know they each handle a lot of power.
Last question: How would these perform compared to DR Dre's Beats Studio or the Pro's?
My buddy has a Pro and it sounds amazing, but extremely over priced...
Thanks for any tips.
