I was originally looking at the Sennheiser HD 598.
But after the lack luster responses in my first post and reading up on some information in others I find myself yearning for a bit better.
Now I am looking at the FiiO E9 and E7 Bundle on amazon with the AKG K702 headphones or the Q701's
I know the biggest rule in buying is where and what you listen to.
So here is what I need.
A good pair of headphones for my computer system in my room.
The motherboard I am using with its built in audio specs.
I have a very extensive music collection of FLAC files as I am one of those old fashion people who still buys cd’s and if it’s not flack its 320 mp3 on everything. I actually have a very nice sound system hooked up to the PC but for the sake of my new roommates I really need something that isn’t going to keep them up at night. This is also why I am looking into the higher price headphone market cause going from my really nice sound system to a cheap pair of headphones is making me cry on the inside cause it’s just not the same.
The types of music I enjoy is anything by joe satriani, steve vai and classic rock in general. AC/DC, rolling stones ect…
I also game a lot and not limited to FPS really, I play a wide range of games from Bastion to world of warcraft and everything in-between
.So my basic question is from people who know WAY more about headphones then I obviously do. Are the 598’s going to meet my needs without an amp or will the extra money and amp add on with the AKG k702 be worth the extra expense?
Other things to keep in mind, I do not like loud headache inducing bass. I do love good bass that makes me feel the note or beat or whatever you want to call it.
