I found both of them for $800, price being the same which is the better pair?
This is a followup to an earlier thread where I asked for recommendations as to the best pair of headphones under $1000.
Previous thread where I describe my preferences and requirements: http://www.head-fi.org/t/695025/best-upgrade-for-1000-or-less
I currently have fischer audio fa-011s and I do really enjoy them, but I feel like I've outgrown them a bit. They tend to be weak in the mids, can lack some impact and detail, and don't have the most accurate sound stage. I'm looking to upgrade to something more expensive that hopefully will meet my growing demands. I need cans that can keep up with both my gaming and my music. Gaming requires that they have a decent sound stage (it doesn't have to be the most massive ever, just large enough that I have some sort of direction), and strong bass. For my music I want something with fuller mids and more detailing than the fischer's and some impact. I listen to all sorts of music (rock, metal, edm, opera, acoustic etc.) so unfortunately I can't tailor it to a specific genre. Additionally, I don't have a lot of money to spend on an expensive amp/DAC so I'd like to stay away from headphones that are EXTREMELY picky.(most likely they will be hooked up to my creative sound blaster ZXR sound card). I've been looking at the Beyer T1, Sennheiser HD700 and HD 800, and Audeze LCD-2 r2, since they seemed to fit my requirements more or less however I haven't listened to any of them so I'm really just going by what I read on forums. Do any of these seem like the best deal/best fit for my requirements? Are there any other cans you'd recommend?
Thanks a bunch!
