I've learned a lot about audio gear today thanks for the site. :)
I'm looking for headphones for classical, jazz, and solo piano music and some pc gaming.
My budget is in euros and it's about 100€ to 200€
I'm looking at the Sennheiser HD 558 which is about 149€.
I'm also getting a Xonar DGX to amp it a little and play with some pc games.
I was considering the HD 598 but wasn't convinced if it would be a better buy for 185€
I'm not an audiophile but looking at most of the expenses going around I wish I wont turn in to a one.
I might turn out one because I'm very obsessive though, almost spent 200€ on keyboards because of a recent obsession which I hope is gone for good. :)
I'll hope I'll figure out something else to obsess about. :D
But I think I'm not doing any big mistake but I'm looking for thoughts on this.
Is the price gap between the HD 558 and the HD 598 reasonable to save some money in and is the Asus Xonar DGX a fairly good card to run the headphones? :)
