This is my first post here. (And yeah, I'm already asking for help xD)
Anyway, I would like some assistance in deciding what pair of headphones I'm going to buy next.
I'm looking for a pair of over ear headphones, don't care if they're foldable, portable, come with a bag or whatnot. I just want them to look, sound and feel good and hopefully be affordable and durable. (Wow, I'm sure nobody else has these expectations, huh?)
I want them to sound good for... Pretty much anything. Mostly music, but gaming and watching movies are welcome too :)
I'm going to be using them on my PC, which has a Creative Sound Blaster Z card (Retail version) with my Pioneer SE-A1000. Not sure if that means anything, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
After countless hours of surfing on the interwebz, I've picked out a few candidates:
Philips Fidelio X1 - Look great, supposedly sound great, but are a bit expensive
Audio Technica ATH-M50 - Look kind of bland, but they're a bit of legend in terms of audio quality, so they're a top candidate. Plus they're quite affordable
Grado SR80i - A friend recommended these to me. I'll be honest, I don't like the way they look, but I'm not shallow enough to dismiss them based on that. If they sound good and look decent, that's good enough for me.
Beyerdynamic DT series - Again, don't really know too much about these, just heard about them from a friend. The 250 Ohm scare me, my sound card isn't that great, it can supposedly handle them, but I assume you guys know better
Please keep in mind that I'm welcome to other suggestions, well :)
Sooo that's about what went through my mind. My budget caps at about 250 Euros. So recommendations within this range or only a bit higher than this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time and help, have an awesome day!
