So, I'm new to all this, and to be perfectly frank I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm looking for a really good (not perfect) headset (and amp?) that will last me for a very long time. If we can say it will last me years then I have no issue spending 600-700 dollars on them (total). Beyond that is more than I *think* I'm willing to spend.
I love music, and listen to a lot of drum and bass, electronic, alternative, pop, hip hop, and pretty much everything else (just not as much). I'm also a huge gamer and watch a ton of movies on my computer. Yes, these need to be headphones for my computer. Bonus points if they can somehow integrate with Xbox One, but I don't really care about that as a deciding feature. I want quality, I like bass, I don't fully understand what treble is, and I want an overall good sound for my needs.
Also, I don't know anything about amps. What do I want in an amp? What's the knob on an amp do? Yes, I'm that new.
Here's what I've been looking at / debating, per recomendation of people on /r/audiophile
Headphones: Beyer DT990 600 ohm
Anyways, advice is appreciated. I'm really not sure what would be good for me, and there isn't really a store around here where I could walk in and test any good headphones.
