Best Home Theater Headphones?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

    I have been on the search for some Home theater headphones, and users from various sites have redirected me here.  My max budget would be 350ish.  I will be using the headphones for my bedroom, where i have my tv connected to my desktop which has a headphones amp.

 

    The headphones i have been looking at are the Sennheiser RS 180/170, or Sennheiser HD558.  I would like to purchase it at best buy as i have a $200+ gift card.  

 

I am open to all suggestions, i do not have a preference of wired or wireless, i just need some good headphones for watching action packed movies.

 

 

Thank you all in advance

Which headphone amplifier (and DAC) do you have?

 

Bestbuy is overpriced on everything, but I would say go for the Senn HD558s.

I do not have a sound card, i wanted to buy the headphones first.

 

I was looking at the 558's but i hear they don't have much of a bass.  How do they compare to the rs 170's?

 

I was looking at/getting the Asus Xonar essence STX

I really have no idea on HD558 vs. RS170 as I've never listened to the RS170s

 

But if your willing to get the Essence STX, then the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250-Ohm would be a nice choice.
