I am absolutely new here on forum and also new to "high quality headphones" .
I am looking few days for some High-End headphones for my PC usually for Music(Nearly everything from Taylor Swift to Marilyn Manson except Hip-Hop)/Movies/Games (in this order) and I have absolutely no idea which one should I buy, there is so many of them.
My maximum budget is around 200$ maybe more.
I'have got offer on used AKG K 701 for 150$ which after reading some reviews appears to me as quite decent headphones but I also found out that I should use amp. and probably some high-end sound card if I am right.
Could some of u audio "Pros" help me out little bit pls ? With question like : Are AKG K701 fine for me or should I buy something completly different ?
Any advice/opinion would be great. Thanks in advance.
ps: My past experience was with low-end crap like iPhone In-Ear headphones etc. and last few months I was using CM Strom Sirus 5.1 which are much better than 10$ in-ear headphones but for sure it's not perfect, basses are terrible imo and so on.
