Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question as it's a headphones forum but I really need help and would like unbiased answers. I have this question posted on Overclock.net but haven't received any answers and this is probably a better forum overall for my question as it's dedicated to Audio.
First off, putting my neighbors and mum into consideration, headphones would definitely be the preferable choice. My mum hates the weak bass coming out of my current Logitech Z506.
However, I'm hesitant about getting the HD598s because from what I've read the bass is plain and simply weak, which is something that just isn't at all acceptable to me... Whereas with the SP2500s, I hear that clarity is great and the bass is very powerful.
I've also never in my life listened to any headphones that sound good at all, the best I've heard are Beats headphones which to me, are the equivalent to apple; all hyped up and paying for the name not the hardware... So I'm also hesitant to know just how good headphones could sound. If possible, could anybody tell me how much better the HD598s would sound in comparison to beats headphones, considering that I find the sound quality of beats to be mediocre at best.
Also, the sound card I'm currently using is a Creative Sound Blaster Z, and as you can tell, I don't know much about audio at all.
Thanks a lot!
EDIT: I'm using a Creative Sound Blaster Z for my sound card.
