First post here and I was looking for some answers and thought I would just ask the entirety of these forums for feedback.
I was looking for a nice pair of headphones (around the $100-$200 USD price range) and finally came to the conclusion of the Beyerdynamics 880-250 ohms or the Sennheiser 598.
Honestly, I am leaning more towards the DT880, but i do love the look and feel of the Senn 598. Ive only put on the 598, but not the DT880's
I will mainly use these headphones at home on my desktop for gaming, music, and I hope to start producing. I also have an iPhone 5S which i listen to music on also.
I listen to EDM and will be using them mainly at home, and if i get a carrying case, maybe outside of my home.
I DO NOT use an amp on either of my devices, and dont plan on buying one in the near future.
From what I've found in my research, the DT880's require more to power than the 598, but what I don't know is if this would take away from the sound quality of the phones, or if it is just the volume that it affects; both on my iPhone and my computer. Knowing this would be helpful.
I've also read that the 598's dont have as much bass as someone like me would desire, but im not so sure about that
I would like to know how the two compare sound-wise, and if my computer and/or my iPhone could power either
Thanks in advance
