I've now been reading review after review and comparison after comparison, but am still having trouble deciding on which choice to go for. I'm looking for a new set of headphones in the 200-300$ range (I live in Sweden though, so this is a rough estimate).
Currently, I've limited it down to Sennheisers HD598 and Momentum, AKG K550 and K545, Phillips Fidelio X1, Sony MDR-1R, Audio Technica ATH-M50X, Soundmagic HP100, and Shure SRH840. The Momentum is the more expensive choice between the Sennheisers, and with the AKGs, I'm having trouble deciding between K550 and K545 since K545 seems to come out on top in comparison tests, at the same time as it's lower ranked on most reviews... If I've understood correctly, M50's are a bit outdated now, so they might fall out of the pool.
I am of course open to other recommendations, but many brands (e.g. V-moda) is unavailable here.
I'd like to use them traveling (so looking good is an advantage), but they will probably be used most of the time at home. I am currently without a decent soundcard and amplifier.
They might be used for films and games, but for music, I listen to pretty much everything, but probably with emphasis on electronic music (hypem picks) and rock (rolling stones to dylan). I might also add that I like a bit of bass.
Any and all help is very much appreciated!
