So I currently have the HD518 and I was thinking I wanted an upgrade. My budget is below $400.
I immediately jumped to the HD600 simply because I love the Sennheiser brand in general--I figured I can't go wrong. I've also received some other suggestions and among them was the DT 990 Pros. I have the opportunity to get the 990s for under $200 (is that even possible, by the way?) vs. the HD600s for just just under $400, so the price difference is vast. I want something that sounds like a great step up from my 518s. Better sound stage and clarity, and keep in mind that I'm looking for something that would be more suited to metal listening. For instance, would the difference in price between the two pairs justify going for the HD600?
I'm definitely open to other suggestions as well that are within my budget.
(I also apologize for my lack of "proper" terminology..I am no audiophile)
