Im looking for a pair of open eared headphones that will sound good for general gaming, a wide range of music.. from Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, to Nine Inch Nails. I know a 100 dollar headphone will not outperform a 300 dollar pair.. but im looking at the best i can get FOR around 100ish.
My motherboard (MSI G45) has a built in AMP and Creative sound blaster cinema / SBX Pro (whatever that means) so im hoping i wont need an AMP and ill get decent audio without the use of a sound card.
I was looking at Sennheiser HD 518 with a Asus Xonar but someone mentioned there not good for Rock music. Will just a normal person that isnt an audiophile notice it? My ears are not trained.. i been going off a g35 for a few years now which i know isnt the best audio quality.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
