I currently own:
Sennheiser HD 448 ($100)
Sennheiser HD 497 ($60)
Want to buy:
$250-$300 price range
For electronic music focus on bass
For home use connected to computer with no amp an no intent on buying one just yet.
(Bought a bithead for my HD 497 a long time ago, big let down, difference was negligable so i sold it)
The Fatal1ty headset is a bit of an enigma for listening to liquid DnB which is my favorite gerne, if i am impressed by the bass on a poor quality headset...i wonder what i am missing on a pair of quailty bass-cans :O!. The Sennheiser's seem to lack quite a bit of bass which makes listening to electronic music in general very underwhelming. Was really disapointed after buying the HD 448 as it was listed as "Top 10 headphones" on headroom. It was my failing as i should have done more research on the HD 448's extreme lack of bass. The headphone is since missing from that list...
To get an idea of what i like to listen too:
These songs sounds wonderfull, full, and warm on my Fatal1ty headset but distant and weak on both the Sennheiser's.
And i DO love the bass alot, I sometimes like to kick it up a notch with heavy dubstep tracks, yes roll your eyes...but i like it :D :
Just love how the morphing growling bass sounds on this track
Just love the energy and bassline in this track.
I understand Denon AH-D2000 would be a good choice for this....well it would @ $200 but the price has jumped to around $380 on amazon :O
I am considering other alternatives now! Still doing research. Any suggestions to aid in my quest?
