I am looking for my first real set of headphones, and I am asking them to do a lot, so hear me out.
I need something that is semi-isolating, but can be a tad open (hence the K 240). I sometimes listen in noisy environments for short-er periods, but I don't care much about sound leakage to those around me.
Listening to: Jazz, Rock, Funk/Blues, Jazz Fusion, Acoustic and occasional hip-hop/pop.
Also will be used for PC gaming, so having a decent sense of directionality of sound is important.
I have pretty much narrowed it down to the AKG K240/ AKG 240 mkii (since it has the extra ear-pads and cord...is that worth the extra cost?) and the SRH 440 for their closed back, but good soundstage.
Any other suggestions? Shoot!
