Hi everyone, I'm completely new to this audiophile world and this will be my first good headphone. I've been researching a lot (90% of it were reading past threads on this forum haha), yet still a little confused on what headphone to go for.
-$300 budget but can go a little over if strong recommendation (:
-Mainly listen to K-Pop, Pop, Ballad, Mainstream stuff, Hip Hop
-I would say my highest priority would be sound quality
-I prefer the sound to be very clear and vibrant over a little muffled/smooth. I'm sorry if I'm not describing it well
-Vocals are important. I heard some headphones sound great but the vocals are a little lacking
-Doesn't matter if open or closed
-I'll be using it for music, movie, gaming but the main use will be music. And most of the music I listen to are listed above (Kpop, mainstream, hip hop, pop, ballad)
I've been considering HD 598, AKG Q701, and V-MODA M100. But it didn't sound like I would enjoy HD 598 since I wanted something very clear/vibrant. AKG Q701 seemed like it would fit well but I heard it wasn't too great for the genre of music I listen to? I heard M100 would be great for the stuff I listen to, but it sounded like overall sound quality is not that great when compared with something like HD 598 / Q710.
