I currently use the ATH M50 for my listening purposes and am considering to upgrade to something fairly better, as in Next Step.
My music tastes are from rock/classic rock, metal, progressive, Fusion, World music. ( few artists i listen on these genre's : Bon jovi, Scorpions, Metallica, Porcupine tree, Vanessa Mae, Yanni, Karnatriix ).
My source is primarily a computer (desktop/laptop) with the Aune T1 as of now, will use it for a while before upgrading. Mostly FLAC/Wav files with a few occasional MP3.
I would like to know your recommendations on
HD 650 / HD 600 / HD 598 / HD 558 ( i have only listened to the HD 558 and did like the sound.
How does the DT880 600Ohm version fare for my requirements ?
Or is there some other headphones i should consider ? Not looking more than 500$ as a budget.
Also, any online deals in the US would be good to know since i have a friend who is now in the US and will be there for two weeks before he flies back to Amsterdam.
Thanks in advance.,
