Need recommendation for Hardstyle, EDM, and metalcore closed back over ear headphones and amp

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am a new member looking to venture into more high end audio. I currently use a gaming headset (Astro A40) mainly for gaming and my main audio enjoyment. I recently tried on a friends Sennheiser HD 650 with schiit stack dac and amp and was blown away. So for the last few days I have been reading forums and reviews non stop looking for a pair of cans for myself. I loved the sound quality of the 650's for listening to hardstyle and edm except for i was looking for a little more bass. I also liked the few metal songs i listened to and was amazed at the sound quality of all the instruments vs what I am used too.

 

So i am looking for something that has the highs and mids similar to the 650s, but packs a little more bass. Also they need to be closed back with minimal sound leakage so I can use them in the office I work at. My price range is roughly $700 for headset with an amp and dac or a bit more if it is really worth it. If it is impossible to achieve the same sound quality with a closed back set then what would recommendations for open back be?

 

My friend directed me to Ultrasone Pro 900's but I have read many mixed reviews and am very unsure of what to do.

 

Thanks for any help.

If you go with a closed headphone, you will not get near the immersive experience of the soundstage offered by the HD650s.

See Innerversity's wall of fame list for closed headphones. Each item listed goes to a full review. Tyll also reviewed the HD650s so you can get a feel for how his tastes are the same/different from yours. Maybe you'll find something you like there smily_headphones1.gif
