Ive decided to invest in some decent headphones. Ive been scouring these forums reading a lot of posts, to the point now where I have become completely indecisive on which to buy!
As for their use, it will mainly be for music (i like all sorts of music but must say, do like a bit of bass! I would'nt say it would be a deal breaker tho) but also be used for playing the occasional game & watching movies (i currently have an old pair of sony wireless headphones for watching tv and movies at night, which I am praying will die any day now!).
I have been looking at the AKG K550's, reviews are mostly good and I love their design, I think they look nicer than most.
The Beyer DT700 PRO have also came into consideration, ive read that they are good for bass. Theres also the DT990 floating about!
I guess ive semi decided on one of these 2. However I am a bit confused about the Beyer DT700 pro's. Having done a quick search on amazon, the 250ohm version (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beyerdynamic-DT770-PRO-Headset-250/dp/B0006NL5SM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358971359&sr=8-1) is cheaper than the 80ohm version (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beyerdynamic-DT770-PRO-Headset-OHM/dp/B0016MNAAI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1358971359&sr=8-2). By comparing both of the pictures, there are also definitely cosmetic differences.
Again, from reading the forum, i think the 80ohm would be ok with an ipod/iphone etc whereas the 250ohm would need an amp? (The only amp i would consider is a small fiio e6 or similar)
Why are there cosmetic differences between the 80 and 250 ohm? Is one a newer version?
I would greatly appreciate any input, as im currently going round in circles!
