I'm looking for some good over-ear, open headphones. I'm brand new to high quality headphones and audio (though I'm able to very clearly tell the difference between low quality MP3s and 320 kbps MP3s/FLACs, even with extremely bad headphones).
I listen to lots of different kinds of music, but in general tend to prefer good instrumentals over vocals. This is just a diverse sample of some bands I like:
The Smashing Pumpkins
Crystal Castles (http://grooveshark.com/#!/album/Crystal+Castles+II/4892412)
Maximum the Hormone (http://grooveshark.com/#!/profile/Maximum+The+Hormone/22206306)
Parov Stelar (http://grooveshark.com/#!/album/Coco/3487011)
Boards of Canada (http://grooveshark.com/#!/boards_of_canada)
Is there any particular brand or model of over-ear headphones that would apply well to all of these kinds of music? I've been considering the Sennheiser 598, as well as other Sennheiser models, though I noticed some comments about how Sennheiser generally isn't very good for electronic-type music (which I sometimes listen to).
I'd say $500 is my price limit.
