I recently posted a thread asking about what kind of headphones best fits me, but i have done more research and rather than reposting my new thoughts on that thread, i thought i'd start fresh and list my newer thoughts in a newer thread.
I am currently looking for a pair of headphones that i can listen to my music with, and if possible use for gaming too. I do own a surround sound amplifier that i can possibly use with the headphones to make it more ideal for me when gaming. My main concern is the music quality, i am not in any way looking for headphones that give balance to both, because from what i've learned almost all headsets geared towards gaming sacrafices music quality. My main objective is to buy headphones for music, because i do have a pair of gaming headphones i would like to buy if necessary.
My budget is about $300. This preferably includes an amplifier and the headphones. The current amp i have is pretty much geared towards gaming, so it would not be my first choice using it for music, although the music quality it provides isn't to terrible. I like listening to rock, like hearing the riffs and drums ect... i also like listening to dubstep and hip hop, but i listen to a lot more rock. Since i am using this mostly for desktop use, i realize it would be cheaper to get a soundcard with an amp rather than getting an actual amp.
What would be my best option here? I am looking for the best quality i can buy with about $300.
