My name is Kevin Aka DieRespwnGameOn and I'm new here and looking for a good pair of headphones to replace my near the end of its days Sennheiser PC 360.
I really love my Sennheiser PC 360, they're comfortable, lightweight and sound good, but this time I want a good pair of headphones instead of a headset.
So at first I compared a few and ended up purchasing a Sennheiser HD598 and I loved it! But somehow it was very itchy and unbearable to wear and I have no idea why...
I also should say I have a ASUS Xonar Essence STX in my computer and that I mostly listen electronical music but I dont mind music like rock or metal (well I listen to alot, I used to hate dubstep but even some of those I start to like) There aren't many genres that I don't like but lets just say I listen mostly to electronical music like trance, techno, dance etc such songs.
One more thing thats important is that I like to game so I want it to be good for games too (and the HD598 did a fine job i'd have to say! really awesome (tested it on Amnesia)
So I'm wondering what would be a good headphone? and is my ASUS good enough to drive that certain headphone? I dont mind it being exspensive as long as it isn't like HD800 or Tesla T1 exspensive haha.
Oh and I don't mind if their closed or open as long as it isn't leather or something else thats not comfy to wear with hot and sweaty weather
Whats also important is I want to hear stuff around me.
For instance when I know someone is gonna call me I want to be able to hear it without putting my headphone down (so an earcup that i can turn away or something like that)
I hope I'm not demanding to much and I'm planning on searching a store where I might be able to try some out but I'm not sure what to look for though.
Anyways thanks in advance,
(edited a spelling error)
