So I am looking to finally dive into the world of real headphones with my budget around USD 300. I live in NZ so it's equivalent to what I want to spend. My main use is primarily music but I also game and watch movies, etc. I want to get a set of stereo headphones and attach a mic when I need it. My sources are my PC, iPhone, xbox1 maybe. As for music taste I listen to a lot of trance/house and acoustic rock. I'm thinking over ear and closed or semi open headphones?? Mainly because I might use them at work but I am open to the idea of open headphones.
I am also considering a DAC! But my knowledge here is lacking. Probably 200 budget.
Would love to know what you think!!! Thanks for any help you can give me!!
