This is my FIRST real headphones. thinking of buying steelseries siberia v2 frost blue or dota 2 edition or steelseries elite but I realize I can't use it with my phone since it is usb powered. But after reading posts here and there I disregard the 3 and came up with two possible choices. I live in a small town in asia and basically I can't wait to have my own set of headphones. These two are available at our local store so any other headphones doesn't really matter anymore. the two have the same price but I have a hard time deciding what to buy.
Things that I will be doing when I get my cans:
1.) dota 2 or games like this genre on my alienware m14x r2
2.) some online mmorpg
3.) I also love to listen to EDM with lots of bass. Gotta love the bass
5.) ska or grunge like 311, cake, nirvana, pepper, etc
6.) I'll be using it mostly with my phone(samsung note 2) when outside the house.
7.) watch movies/series with it
8.) Casual games on my laptop like batman arkham city, sleeping dogs, naruto shippuden, skyrim etc
9.) a little bit of FPS.
I have a chance to listen to the m50 for a couple of minutes but it's not really that comfortable and makes my ear sweat. but i'm leaning towards buying it for now. doesn't know anything about 558 yet since the store don't have any display for it. I'm aware that m50 have limited sound stage but does it really matter?
Please enlighten me headfi.
