My budget is approx $800 USD and I'm willing to stretch it a bit more if it can be justified. I'm assuming I'm going to be needing an amp and possibly a DAC as well to fit into the budget.
I listen to a variety of music genres so I'm looking for some cans that are fairly well rounded. I enjoy a healthy amount of bass in my music but I don't want it to overpower everything else like the vocals in my trance and jazz tracks.
Genres: EDM (Trance -> Electro -> House -> Dubstep), Hip-Hop, Rap, R&B, Jazz, Classical (mainly piano compositions), and some Pop music.
I mostly listen to lossless music files on my desktop computer which has an old X-Fi Fatal1ty sound card w/ a front panel. I also listen to music on my iPod and phone on occasion. Portability is a plus but not necessary as I wont be taking these outdoors much, if at all.
Right now I'm looking at buying the Beyerdynamic DT 880 600ohm w/ FiiO e9 and e17. Is this a good buy for my budget or can I get better for my needs? Also looking at the Denon D5000, Sennheiser HD650, and Ultrasone Pro 900 (although I'm leaning more toward not getting these due to the recessed midrange).
