So currently, I have a X-Fi Titanium HD paired up with Audio Technica ATH-AD700.
Mainly playing BF4/League, I do listen to music (50/50, maybe 60/40 gaming to music). Main genres are Trance, Electro, Chill, etc to some Acoustic (David Choi, Random Cover vids) to Hip-Hop/Rap (Childish Gambino, etc). I guess an overall genre?
While this has been great for me, I'm wanting to try other headphones.
I would like something as comfortable as the AD700s, open or closed don't matter to me or people around me.
At the moment, ones I've found highly recommended were the Sennheiser HD598, Beyerdynamic DT-990-Pro-250, Audio-Technica ATH-A900X. Any other recommends would be great. Looking to spend ~$200, ~$300 if I would get an amp. Mainly prefer Amazon for the free shipping as I'm in Hawaii, but if need be, I can pay the cost for shipping as well.
From what I understand, these don't require an amp but do benefit from it?
Would I need one or just create a better experience?
Also on the side, what are some good desktop speakers, preferably in the price of $100-$200.
I'm looking at M-Audio AV 40s. These would be purely for music and movies (80\20)
Thank you for any input :)
And sorry for a disorganized wall of text, i tried ;w;
