Hi Head-Fi members, I am a new poster here and looking for your recommendations on a pair of headphones please. I am by no means an audiophile, but I do appreciate quality - which is why I'm here for advise
I am looking to buy some headphones that will be used mainly for gaming, but also for music and movies. The headphones will be mainly plugged into a MixAmp Pro (to be used with my PS4), but I would also like the option for them to plug directly into my iMac and iPhone 5 without the need for an amp.
In an ideal situation, I would like the headphones to not leak too much sound and to isolate sound from me. I also want the headphones to be comfortable, as they will be used for long stints. Portability would be a plus point, but it is not a deal breaker. My tastes in music are very varied, from rock to EDM, and therefore it is hard to pin point any specific sound needs - especially when considering these need to be very good all-rounders, as they have varying uses!
As with any product I buy, my budget always tends to get larger the more I research! My budget initially started out at £150, but is now at £250.
I've been researching for quite a while now, and the Sennheiser Momentums are probably the front runners in my search at the moment. However, I have recently found myself straying away from my ideal headphone needs above, and nearly purchased a pair of Sennheiser HD 600s yesterday - which is why I thought I better ask for advise sooner rather than later. I have read http://www.head-fi.org/t/534479/mad-lust-envys-headphone-gaming-guide-update-2-20-2014-boompro-list-chicoloms-faq-added - but with my needs not just being gaming, I didn't want to restrict my options.
Thanks in advance for any help - it is much appreciated.
