I have been using a Sennheiser cx500 in-ear headphones for about three years and now decided to buy a better headphone. After a small research Sennheiser HD598 seemed like a good choice. But I wanted to take your opinions:
I mostly listen to classical, jazz and postrock. (Sometimes also funk.) Is this a good headphone for these types of music? I know most of the HD598 owners complain about the headphone's bass quality, but do you think that the current bass quality would be a problem for me according to my musical taste?
Do you have any headphone suggestions under $300 that would fit me better than HD598?
Also I saw some people bought HD598 for under $200 (not used). Do you have any idea where I can find the best price for the headphones in New York? I am planning to buy my headphones when I go to NY two weeks later and do not have an idea where I can find the best price.
edit: Some more details: My archive consists mostly FLAC. I am addicted to good music and cannot stand a second without listening to good music. Therefore I need really comfortable headphones. Lots of people say that Grados are not good for listening to music more than 2 hours. Is it true? If yes, unfortunately it is not suitable for me. Also, please consider that I do not have any amps at the moment.
