im no audiophile and dont know much about ohms and such for headphones. ive been in the market for a new pair and have been looking towards a few. the audio technica and beyerdynamics. but of course there are so many version for each pair that it makes it even harder to pick a pair.
for the beyerdynamics, i love the looks of them and they seem to have good reviews.
150$ - dt990-pro 250ohm http://tinyurl.com/lxjbpea
300$ - 32 ohm version.
330$ - 600 ohm version.
beyerdynamic dt880 pro
215$ 250 ohm version.
beyerdynamic dt880 premium
350$ 32 ohm version
350$ 250 ohm verison.
audio technica are beautiful looking.
Audio Technica ATH-AD700 32 ohm - 200$
Audio-Technica ATH-AD700X - 140$ (on sale)
Audio Technica ATH-A700X - 115$(on sale)
with the audio technicas that were listed, im not sure what the AD version has over the regular A version, so dont know which are better.
so with 2 different brands and each one having 3 headphones that are each available. im not sure what i should be looking to get. if there are obvious better headphones out there as well, im up for recommendations. i just had these 2 in mind because of the actual looks and the over the ear feature.
money isnt to much of an issue, if i were to take out the prices from the ones i listed and just see which were better in general without price in consideration.
------dont have a dedicated sound card. im running the msi z87 g45 motherboard. it says it runs on Realtek ALC1150 with audio boost
