So i'm in the market for some new headphones.
Just to give a quick rundown of my previous experience; my first pair of decent headphones were some AD900's. Loved them but found they were lacking on the bass front. This lead to me purchasing some Hifiman He-400's a while ago and while they had awesome SQ I found them too uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time. Also the bass was not what I was lead to believe so I returned them (also big ups to Hifiman here. The 30 day return policy was legit and had 0 hassles. A+ for service). I was lead to believe the He-400's had quite a bit of impact and bass quantity but it wasn't as good as I expected.
My local shop (in NZ) has a sennheiser sale on and essentially I can get the Senn HD600's Dt990's and Dt880's (600ohm) for the same price and I don't really know which can to pick.
I will be using them predominantly for gaming and music.
My music taste is quite varied but I find myself listening to quite a lot of classical, rock and house.
They will be driven by my Asus xonar STX soundcard.
If you guys were in my position what can would you go for and why?
Also if you have any suggestions as to what you think I should get your opinions are most welcome!!
If I have left anything out let me know
