I am looking into getting some new cans and have never really purchased high end cans, some advice would be appreciated. NOTE: I will be powering these cans with a FiiO Olympus E10.
I am looking for a headphone that does everything fairly well. I often watch TV, listen to music (mostly rock), and play games. That being said, I'd like the cans to do fairly well in all those things, the music is what they will likely be used for the most. I don't hate base, I like it, I just don't want the bass to overpower anything else too much. My primary choices right now are the Beyer D770 Pro and DT990 Pro, both the 250 Ohm variants. The desk at my mothers house is in my living room, but I hear the DT990s don't leak too bad. If they are a better option by far, I have no problem with the open design. The isolation might be nice to keeps things out.
DT990 Pro = $200 USD
DT770 Pro = $170 USD
I am in Canada, but the cans are much cheaper on the US amazon, so I will be purchasing them there and paying the slight duty.
