I used to play a lot of video games, so a few year ago I purchased the Astro A40's and have been using them ever since. Although, I no longer play video games and primarily use them to listen to music (and talk on skype, which is a low priority when it comes to determining the correct headphone). I'm in college studying Computer Science, and spend a lot of my time coding at my computer and listening to music while doing this. I also do internships over the summer, and literally spend all day coding. I can easily rack up 4 or 5 hours of straight listening to music while doing this. Hence, I've decided that it's time to invest in a new pair of headphone that better suit my needs now. Although, since my audio/headphones expertise is limited at best, I decided asking people who know their stuff might be beneficial!
I primarily listen to EDM/Electronic/Dubstep. When I first started listening to these genres, I heavily favored the bass, but now I find the mids and highs to be equally important if not more. Having said that, I still enjoy the bass, just not rampant bass. I have a sub in my car for that .
I've been looking around for about two days now and found that the Sennheiser Momentums are said to be excellent. Although, on more than one occasion, I've read conflicting reviews about their performance when listening to EDM/Electronic/Dubstep - which I presume is due to different expectations with regards to bass.
Here are some examples of music that I would be listening to:
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
