Well I have been lurking around here for a while but have never really had the extra capital to invest in any decent headphones. I have had multiple $40-$80 cans that have all failed me in some way, whether in comfort, sound quality, or build quality. I figure I would probably save myself the time, effort and money, and just invest in a decent pair of headphones.
I prefer over-ear to on-ear, I will be using the internal DAC in my iMac so portability is not needed. Don't care about style but do care about comfort. They will be used mostly for music and possibly some light gaming. Music I listen to most would be: Punk, Post-Hardcore, Ska, Metal, and Johnny Cash. I am NOT a bass head. I like a noticeable bass but nothing too powerful.
So far I have considered:
So can anyone convince me or rule out any of these, or suggest something better? I think I included any pertinent information but if more is needed let me know. Also I can spend a little over $200 but I would like to keep $200 as a good median.
