I'm looking for a new pair of cans for music.. well for gaming as well but mostly music. I listen to a lot of Indie Rock, Alternative, and few pop-punk bands. I hear the HD650s are great for this type of music but require serious amping?
I'll be using it mainly at home with my computer. Do the HD650s really require serious amping? My current setup is the ASUS Xonar DG which I think won't cut it so what sound card would you guys recommend (both sound cards and/or different headphones)?
My budget is around $600-700 AUD all up. Pricing of HD650s here are $450-500 (lowest I've seen is $450). My current headphones are the Sennheiser HD598s. Are the HD650s a big jump from that? In case anyone is wondering.. my brother are taking my HD598s which is why I'm looking for a new pair of cans.
edit: Actually just seen a HD650 for around $400 :D
