Ok i guess i should start with a little background...
Well i am a sixteen year old with a bit of obsession with audio lately.. i purchased my first set up decent "cans" a few months with the ath M50's and what can i say, im in love. Im currently playing them through my acer computer (spotify and itunes) and also my droid phone with my fiio e11 amp. I plan on keeping my m50's as my all around phones ( have bought velour pads and a case for them btw) and have the soul SL150's i throw in my bag every day with me for school (got them new off amazon for 50$). like bass but i am in no way a bass head, i listen to mostly Alternative Rock (Green day, Theory of a Deadman, Weezer) but like to sometimes to mix it up with something fun like some rap or Skrillx or something.
okay what ive been looking for : Have been searching for an open back pair for at home use and also maybe for some COD on the ps3.
Sennheiser HD 558: Baby steps maybe? probley could find for $100 and no need for an amp upgrade.
Sennheiser HD 598: Comfort looks amazing, good sound but lacking bass and not a fan of the old man colors.. But was offered a new pair on Ebay for $160.
Beyerdynamic DT990 pro: Comfort+.. but worried about bad reviews due to harsh mids and not good for newer music But on Amazon for $155 right now.
AKG q701- look cool huge soundstage... good for COD... and Good comfort.. But apparently really hard to drive.. probley could get a new pair for about 160.
Fidelio X1: love the classy look, super comfy, great bass, but apparently to slow for Rock music
HifiMan he400's: GO BIG OR GO HOME option , great reviews, good comfort, new model coming out soon (he 400i's) so maybe price will come down a little.. BUT IF they are worth it im willing to pay for the amp upgrade (Schitt Modi/Magni combo?) and the $300 price tag for these headphones...
PLEASE HELP! lol not really urgent but id Appreciate it P.S. im up for suggestions!! maybe some grados or something?? P.S.S i apologize for my noobiness
