Hello Head-Fi, this is my first post here, so please excuse me if I sound a bit new to all of this :P
I currently have a HD598 that I've been using for music and gaming for the past year. I like them a lot, but recently I've found them to be lacking. I've searched on various websites (including Head-Fi) for tons of hours, and I've found some close comparisons to what I was looking at, but was wondering if anyone had a more personal response.
After using the HD598 for a while, I'm looking for slightly more bass. Music-wise, I'm not a big bass type of guy, I prefer more mids/treble, but it sometimes feels like I am missing out. I primarily listen to power/symphonic metal. Bands such as Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, and
eyerdynamic DT 990
The headphones would be used at home only, on a dedicated amp. Originally, I thought the DT990 would be a great choice, but I read in a few places that mids were overshadowed which had me worried. While the Fidelio X1 seems to have more bass than I was looking for, from what I read it's not overbearing, and would probably help with games. The Sony/AKG seem to be neutral compared to the other 2, but posts I read aren't really in the same predicament as I am, and it's hard to find a clear choice. (Most people asking similar questions are either bass heads, or running headphones off a low powered source, etc)
If anyone has input on which headphone is better suited towards this taste, I would love the help. I'm also open to any suggestions to other headphones, the 4 I listed seem to be solid choices from what I gathered.
Thanks for the help
