For the last few years I've been using Sennheiser HD380 pros. I use these for both listening to music and as monitors in a home recording studio. I've been really pleased with these, but I'm looking to buy a second pair, predominantly more for music and movies. To go for something a bit different than I've been used to I'm looking at open back. In particular:
Sennheiser HD 598
My budget is around $200.
I listen to a lot of folk, country, rock and pop. Paul Simon, Richard Thompson, Jackson Browne, Tom Waits, Rodney Crowell, Lindsey Buckingham, Martin Simpson, etc.... I very rarely listen to rap or r n b.
Also, I love my home theatre setup, but the sound of explosions and light sabres can disturb others late at night!
Would be great to hear any thoughts!
