Dear Head Fi community,
Been lurking around for quite some time now but can't really find the solution for my problem. I know there are a 1000 diffrent threads like mine already out there, but everyone seems to suggest diffrent ones, and since I am not able to listen to each and every headphone out there I want to ask your opinion before purchasing.
Just like many others I'm also used to 'gaming' headphones. I do actually like them, however, the sound quality is obviously not as good as it could be.
What I'm looking for (in order of importance):
- Good sound quality for diffrent genres of music (I listen from classical to dubstep to heavy metal to trance and everything in between)
- Comfortable: I love the way the Steelseries Siberia sits on my head without it ever feeling annoying or heavy or whatever
- $150 dollar maximum, would prefer around ~$100 dollar if possible
- Rather not have an amp (maybe save up some money for this after purchasing the headphones if possible)
Now I've been looking for a few diffrent ones. So far mostly the Senn HD598 and the Shure SRH440. However, the Senn is pretty much twice as expensive while it get's the same kind of reviews.
What headphones would you advise and why?
Thanks for answering and have a great day! :)
PS: English isn't my primairy language so bear with me
EDIT: I will mostly be using the headphones inside. I won't necissary bring them with me anywhere.
