Currently looking for a upgrade to my ATH-m50s. While these have been “OK”, I’m looking for something different. I use my headphones for gaming and movies primarily, although I do listen to music regularly (only at home, all genres including instrumental).
From the research I’ve done it seems like I’m looking for an open headphone and the primary one that I see recommended is the Sennheiser HD598 as the sound stage is very large. This is desirable as I’m looking for a headphone that would be very immersive for both gaming and movies (ie. Playing skyrim). I’ve also head these are extremely comfortable, which is a must as I wear them for hours at a time.
The one issue is that I see with these headphones is that people report the bass not being very good. This is worrisome as it could mean that explosions for example, would not sound “present” / very realistic.
What can people suggest in terms of a headphone that would suit that purpose what I am looking for.
