Hey guys, been a lurker over the last three days and decided to join up. I've always had a bit of an ear for when sound quality is poor, but I'm definitely not an audiophile (although if I had the money I'd probably become one ).
So I've recently become interested in purchasing some over-ear headphones for music listening. I currently own a pair of Siberia V2 'gaming' headphones which I purchased a while ago primarily due to the look and design of the suspended headband, and the 'gamer' tag. I'm not much of a gamer anymore, and the suspended headband isn't important either!
So now I'm just looking for some high quality, inexpensive headphones for listening to music! I intend to purchase an Xonar DG sound card because I only have onboard sound.
I mainly listen to drum 'n' bass, hip & trip hop, electronic, trance, downtempo (all in FLAC or 320kbps MP3). Although, I find myself liking all sorts of genres including rock.
I love a bit of bass, but not overdoing it. Midrange is as important as lows and hi's for me, as I love crisp vocal tracks.
I wouldn't like to spend more than £60 (GBP).
What I'm considering...
Sony MDR-V6 - In budget, reliable, good reviews. Apparently mids can become 'cluttered'?
Creative Aurvana Live - Recommended from the Headphone Buying Guide. In budget, good reviews... not perfect build quality.
Denon AH-D1100 - Just in budget, fairly good reviews, slightly lesser build quality.
I would appreciate advice/suggestions, thank you all!
