Looking for some new headphones after I'm getting sick of these Sennheiser's thin muddy noise compared to my JVC HA-S700 which died recently. I figured I'd
break the bank to go with my new computer.
I watch all genre's of movies, and listen to all all genre's of music minus electronic (if that's what it's called...) and rap. Favorite bands are The Fray, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, One Republic, but I listen to a lot of everything.
Prefer full sized over ear headphones.
Been looking at HD598 (sounds like what I'm favoring right now, but I'm not sure what people mean when they say it is a neutral headphone, does it make them sound distant/boring?). I also hear they lack bass, and while I'm not a "need to have a subwoofer in my car" guy, I find bass really important for immersion in games and movies.
DT880 Premiums heard they are hate them or love them, due to the bigger bass and less quality in the treble/mids? I don't know, I'm no audiophile, just want something to wow me and ressure me that spending hundreds on a headphone isn't crazy.
