Hi, I need some advice.
I have a choice of Sennheiser 558, 518, 449 and PX-360. I'm leaning more towards the 558 at the moment. I will use it mainly for listening to metal/rock/grunge with a bit of hip-hop and electronic/techno too from my PC, record player and a CD player through a Technics intergrated amp. Not much of a fan of headphones with too much bass. I will also use it for movies and games occasionally. I'll also be doing some mixing & mastering through them and I heard the 558 is somewhat good for that so that is why am I leaning towards that more at the moment. If I did get a pair of studio headphones eventually I'd probably go for a HD380 Pro or would that be unecessary?
The reason I have a choice out of them is because I can get them for 'free' through Qantas frequent flyer store. They seem the best available ones that aren't overly expensive.
