Looking for a Clear and Bassy Set of Cans for Listening to Electronic Music and Gaming

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello Headfi!

Noob here.

 

I'm in the market for some new headphones, my old beyerdynamic dt 770's (from the 1990's) got badly damaged in a move recently so I've been searching around but am completely stumped on what to get next.

 

I mainly listen to electronic music and game so I definitely want something that really packs a punch in the low freq. range but still maintains crisp clarity in the mids and highs.

 

My audio source is from my heavily modded Xonar STX soundcard using 3 OPA-SUN OPAMPs which are considered "bright" if that helps at all.

 

Price range doesn't really matter.

 

Can anyone recommend me anything?

If you're after a v-shaped response consider the DT990

I was eyeballing the DT 880 Pro's since I've heard review on numerous sites that the 880's sound better than the 990's for bass and clarity.

If price range doesn't matter,you could look into the "old" Denon AH-XXXX line. :cool:

The MS-1 has very little soundstage but I found it more than adequate for over 5 years as my only headphone.  Granted, the most advanced game I played at the time was Battlefield 2.  Definitely has the crisp mids and if not the deepest bass, perhaps the punchiest I had experienced at the time.

 

They're lightweight, and don't isolate well but I thought that was actually a plus--when the drunken neighbors set the dorm on fire, at least I could hear the "Oh $hit!" (my only warning since the alarms didn't go off until much later).
