(I've already posted in the recommendation thread but my post seems to have been lost in the onslaught of other replies.)
I'm looking to get an open-back headphone in the $200-300 range. So far I've narrowed it down to the AKG Q701, Sennheiser HD598, and Beyerdynamic DT990 250ohm.
Use: At home.
Priorities: The 3 main attributes I would be looking for are (ranked in value) comfort > soundstage > bass. I'm coming from a pair of Ultrasone HFI-780s which have great bass, but so-so comfort and soundstage.
Music Genres: I mainly listen to electronic music (trance, house, electro, drum and bass), but also to rock, classical, and ambient (chillout, post-rock).
Source: iPod touch 4g and Asus N56VZ laptop (soundcard: RealTek ALC663)
Amplifier: I have a Meier-Audio Corda Headsix portable amp to drive the headphones I would get; I've asked around and apparently this amp should be fine to drive these headphones.
Out of these headphones, which one should I get? Or are there other ones I should be considering?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
