Headphone and Amp/DAC in the range of $200-$400 ~ Mainly for DnB, electro, and liquid DnB/dubstep as well as gaming

Hello all.

 

I'm in the market to purchase some nicer sound equipment. I find my current HD 439s extremely lacking in sound stage above all else as well as a huge void in bass.

 

I mainly listen to genres of EDM but i certainly sway to other genres every once and a while. Gaming is also something that i extensively spend time on, though, in terms of headphones needing to be geared towards it is not a concern.

 

I'm currently looking at these headphones:

 

- Sennheiser HD 598s ~ From what i can gather, these have expectational ranges all around, though lacking slightly when it comes to bass.

 

- Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro ~ These seemed to be pretty mixed when reviewed, i understand sound is subjective though, but people mainly seem to be complaining about mids being overwhelmed by treble as well as bass.

 

Certainly open to more recommendations, i have no requisite on whether it is open or closed, though i prefer the sound stage of open headphones.

 

There is only one DAC/Amp combo I've looked at so far, the Audioengine D1.

 

Thoughts on this unit? Any other recommendations?

 

I'd like to stay under 400 dollars but if you truly believe spending a slight amount more would be worth the experience, I'd definitely consider it.

Get the HE-400 while it's on sale for 299. You can't beat it for EDM.
