I'm looking for new speakers to replace my Logitech Z-2300 2.1 computer speakers.
These speakers would primarily serve as desktop speakers for near field listening. Maybe occasionally I would move them to the living room for some small kick backs. I listen to punk rock/ska, hip-hop, EDM, and some downtempo music.
As for sounds I like... I'm not a basshead. I love the sound signature of the HD600's. Even though they don't have lots of bass quantity, I like that they have good bass quality (tight, precise bass with an amp). M50's sound great, I like the bass, but the highs can be a bit piercing (sharp peak somewhere around 8k I think). I also have the Logitech UE6000's which have too much bass for my liking.
My price range is about 300. Some popular choices seem to be the
I know the A5+ are $400. If they are significantly better and worth the extra cost, I would make the leap. Otherwise I would prefer sticking closer to 300.
