Hello all of Head-Fi! I've been wondering about these forums for a good few years or so and finally decided to join and I'm in a bit of a pickle. As title says I need some help deciding on a pair of full-sized headphones preferably no more than $200 but if anyone as any suggestions slightly over $200, I can shell out the extra cash.
Note worthy I listen to a lot of edm(trance & atmospheric bass heavier tunes) as well as some classical and video game soundtrack stuff similar to what you'd hear in earlier final fantasy games and other orchestrated game ost's. So something that compliments those genres.
Through my lurking and research on Head-Fi/around the net I've come across some cans that seem to get a lot of praise, granted I cant think of all the numbers and letters off the top of my head(ill know em if they're mentioned) but I can recall talk of the audio technica ath-a900x's regardless of having some issues. The main issue I see is the wing support that, well... doesn't support all that much on some noggin sizes(I think I have an average noggin) but can be remedied with the help of a rubber band. However I have noticed that they have been discontinued on at's site and other retail sites so I'm unsure whether or not they'll have a successor or if I should even consider or not.
Anyways, any n all thoughts/suggestions are welcome and appreciated, Thanks.
Also current set up is my hisound n1 with a fiio e11, if that's worth knowing.Edit:Oops forgot to mention whether or not open or closed. Which ever is better suited to said genres. The ath ad900x has also caught my eye but I'm unsure as to which is overall better for my music tastes.
