I am pretty much a virgin in this environment and am as familiar with the technical aspects of headphones as Sheldon Cooper is familiar with women.
I've only had one set of headphones (Sennheiser HD202) and that's about all I know.
I prefer circumaural headphones as I hate the feeling of in-ear and sweat profusely with on-ear!
My budget is around 200-250$
My main usage is for movies, games and music. I would like to use them with my modest Pioneer VSX-323-K receiver (first receiver ever) as well as use them with my iPad.
I prefer closed-back so I can listen to stuff without disturbing the wife and not hearing the kids.
Should I get Dynamic or dual-driver headphones w/single or dual crossovers (a friend suggested the latter)?
Models I have looked at so far are:
Sony MDR-V6 and MDR-7506
Others too, but that list is at home and my memory is as solid as a goldfish.
Any input and direction you can steer me in would be greatly appreciated as I don't want my purchase to be a dud.
