I know the title of this thread sounds extremely generic, but I really did a lot of research considering this matter seeing numerous divergent opinions about various headphones, and so I am confused now.
One thing I would like to say first is that I do not in fact have a chance to listen (in real life :) ) to most of the models I considered, because the city I live in simply cannot provide places with such possibility.
So basically I would like to ask for advice in choosing appropriate headphones for music, movies and gaming, consequently they should have e.g. a really profound soundstage, balanced frequencies. I currently own Sennheiser HD202 and I would like to reach out for something better. I have already read many reviews of the following:
- Sennheiser HD558
- Sennheiser HD598
- Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro
- AKG K501
These were also the models I wanted to buy, but I am open to other offers.
I would also like to buy a sound card (or DAC/amp) for the model I choose and I was thinking about Asus Xonar U7, mainly because I cannot spend much money on it.
Would really appreciate some help in this matter :)
