Here is my situation....
I am a college student living in a duplex with 3 up top with me and two downstairs. There is usually a decent amount of noise in the house with this situation. Which is why I'm a little hesitant to get open cans, but I have never had them, so I don't know if outside noise will affect the experience, and if I will have to turn them way up to drown out outside noise. (This might be a problem if its so loud that people can hear them through my door ect ect.)
I am upgrading from the Sennheiser PXC 450's.
I watch a lot of movies and play some FPS and MMORPG's. As far as music, I listen to all genre's. I like a some bass, but not too overpowering.
I am in a battle between these two headphones. I can't decide!!!!
On one hand, I know open cans have a tendency to be better overall, but I'm afraid the 598's won't have enough bass to satisfy my needs. (I hear they are punchy but not very strong if you enjoy a little boom)
...and if that's the case, Is there a portable AMP out there in the $75-$100 dollar range that would increase the bass up to the level of the AKG K 550's? I want to try open cans, but given my situation I don't know what the smarter decision is..
So given my situation. And spending limit of around $275-300 what would you do????
Any suggestions would be of 10000x help!
