Hello readers, as you might have read in my other thread, I am looking for some headphones, my budget is about €200 (270 USD). I decided to open a new topic as I have narrowed down my choices and have some other qeustions to ask. I am now deciding between the Sennheiser HD 598 and the Beyerdynamic DT880. My qeustion is, which do you prefer and why? I also wonder which impendance should I get if I get the DT 880 as from what i've read there are 32 ohm, 250 ohm and 600 ohm versions and what is the difference between these?
I will be mainly using them on my Pioneer VSX-827 receiver, how would this receiver perform with those headphones? I would also sometimes like to use the headphones on my iphone (4) or laptop (asus n55sf).
I would use them mainly for music,movies and gaming. So i basically need a good all rounder. When i listen to music I like to listen to a lot of different genres but especially a lot of rock and classic rock.
I currently do not own a headphone amp but I might get one in a few months, although i'm not sure about this yet. I am really wondering how the DT880 on the different impendances perform without an amp.
I am currently leaning towards the DT880 a bit, but I am also a bit worried about its performance without an amp.
I am new to the headphone world, I have read a lot about headphones the last few weeks but it still is a bit confusing for me. I could really use some help from the experts, thanks in advance for your help!
