So technically I've been an audiophile since I got my Tritton AX 720's two years ago just to game on, and thought they were the best thing I'd ever listened to... That is until a week or two later when I looked up some real audiophile headphones. Don't get me wrong, my 720's are still a great pair of phones, but I think now that I have some disposable income I can finally put down a few hundred on a -real- pair.
So here's me asking for a bit of help with choosing some nice cans.
I need something that will pair well with my Xonar Essence STX card. I'm also just launching myself into home recording, so I need something I can use to make sure what I record sounds as good as it can. Other uses will be music listinin', and lastly game playin'. Unfortunately I can't give you a specific genre that I mostly enjoy because my library goes from Benny Goodman to Brand-X to deadmou5e. So, yea.
I think the AKG K701's might be for me, but honestly It was just a gut feeling pick so I would love some validation/recommendations. If you do recommend something keep is sub-300$, or have a REALLY good reason why I should save up another month to get your pick.
Thanks a ton in advance, I really hope to be here a bunch to talk about how great my my headphones are. (when I get them :P)
