Budget: About $500, can be flexible, budget includes DAC and AMP
Music: Blues, rock, and some metal
The headphones would be used with primarily MOBA games, but a decent sound stage would still be nice.
The amount of use would be about 60% music and movies, 40% games
I would prefer open backed headphones, but I also wouldn't mind closed headphones. Currently I am using a creative x-fi with jbl creatures, and don't own any headphones, dac, or amp. The headphones would be for home use.
I haven't owned any headphones. Although, I've had a Tritton AX PC Pro headset, but my experiences were unpleasant, and they don't really qualify as a decent headphone.
