this is my first post here after reading this great forum for a long time now. I decided to finally join and open a thread for intro+some advice.
Im running a xfi sb0880 soundcard with an entry level Sony headphones. Dont even remember the model just bought them last week in a fit or frustration after running around helpless in my city (Karachi) and finding either generic crap (Phony/ DrDRA BLEATS?! LOL!!) or those high end Beyerdynamic cans that proly require a powerstation to run and are above 500$.
I had ordered a pair of Denon AHD2000s off of a local vendor who informed me the company stopped making them.
Previously I was using JVC RX 900s for a long time. Phenomenal headsets for the money! Never heard anything like them before in the price range.
On suggestion of some of my sound connoisseur friends, Ive narrowed down my choice to the following:
budget: max 250 USD
sound quality Im looking for: clarity with base. I dont care abt the mids as long as I can hear those rumbling lows AND the guitar riffs well Im a happy man!
- VModa LP2 (Ive read enough to know theyre controversial, but the sound described is leaning towards bass so...)
- Some Audio technica models I dont remember the names of.
I will be shipping them to my place so its a one shot thing... If I get something I dont like then Ill prolly be stuck with it for a long time.
