Nooooo, I just literally spent close to an hour and a half typing this message, because English is quite hard for me, and when I submit my message I was automatically logged out and everything disappeared, I'm feeling really bad right now.
OK, let's type it again.
I'm sorry but I think it's going to be a bit briefer this time.
When I listened a few years ago to my first non-apple headset, I believe it was the Shure SE215, I felt in love with all the detail and extra stuff I heard. Since then/m I see myself as somebody who really appreciate a good sound. Despite of this I didn't bought a new headset when my dog ate the Shure's, simply because I never listened to music outside my house, besides in my car, anymore. But since a few weeks I'm working at home at nighttime and I can't really enjoy my speakers without waking somebody up. So I went looking for a pair of headphones, read many reviews and decided to go for the DT 990 PRO. They felt so amazingly comfortable on my head, but I felt they didn't give me everything they offer without an amp. So I went for the SRH840, my second choice. But they, I thought a long time on how to say this, didn't gave me the 'wow-feeling' I had when I first heard the SE215's and after a while they don't feel comfortable anymore.
So I was basically back to where I began, read lots of reviews and watched comparisons on Youtube and decided to go for the Momentum, but then by accident I found a place where I could buy them with a discount and they are offering a few other models too, I list the models with the price I would be paying and the cheapest I can find them anywhere else in the Netherlands + discount%:
Sennheiser RS 220 €240 - €399 40%
Sennheiser MM 550-X €215 - €339 37%
Sennheiser Momentum €165- €275 40%
There are a few other options, but after the research I did I think they are all inferior to the ones above.
Sennheiser Amperior €165 - They aren't available anywhere else anymore.
And the Momentum on ear for €110 - €199 44%
Could you guys please advise on which one to get, I'm still not sure after all the searching.
As I said I will be using them for listening to music while working, this really helps me concentrate. I'm alone in my office room so I won't be bothering anybody with open backs or something. The music I listen to varies very much, from Eminem to Chopin and everything in between, but I have to admit overall my listening hours weights heavily to top 40 and rap songs. I would prefer to not have to use an amp. The source is ~always Youtube because of the very easy way of listening to all kind of stuff and the recommendations on the right. I've tried Google music and .flac files but I always end up back at Youtube. In my PC there is a Asus TUF Gryphon Z87 motherboard with its integrated ''sound card' and it has a S/PDIF and 3.5mm jack connection. In the same room there's also a 7.2 Onkyo receiver, I don't know which model exactly, but I could look that up if that's important. If I'm getting a wireless one maybe I could connect them with S/PDIF and get better quality?
It would be nice if I could use the headphones in an airplane, but if this would compensate on sound quality it isn't that important, if they would be the same exact quality I would be willing to pay extra for the ones that you could use in the plane though.
It is also important that they will stay comfortable with multiple 3 hour shifts.
Hopefully I didn't let anything out I had the first time. If you made it this far, thank you,
