hey guys and gals, I need suggestions on a new set of headphones, I will use them for everyday stuff mostly music and movies. I don't listen to rap or hip hop. I'm not thinking about a budget right now, but wouldn't want to spend a thousand bucks either. I want something good, that will last. I don't have an amp or dac, and I am not looking to get one soon, I am not an audiophile but appreciate good sound quality, lets say Beyers DT800 seems to be a good benchmark that people around here like to use.
my criterias and things I want
- no sound leaking, non open headphones that I can listen to my privacy
- must have good audio reproduction, minimum DT880 or close,
- no spiral cabling, very long cable around 4m / 15 foot, I can ease on this if recabling on cheap is an option
- possibly a volume control pod, really need this feature as I want to change volume on the fly
my first choice was to get either the takstar hi 2050 or Pro80 but the hi 2050 is open headphones so there will be a lot of sound leaking, and it also has an extension cable. The Pro80's however I like but the have this monstrously horrible spiral telephone cord like cable that will pull strain, neither one have a volume controller and to recable them will cost me a fortune since I got no help sourcing anybody who sells proper microphone stereo cable and willing to ship internationally. Would consider ebay but the mogami cables I found were too expensive or already pre wired and had connectors or they were being sold for hundreds of feet when I only need maybe 15 feet.
anyway, thanks for your time and input towards helping me source my perfect headphones.
