Preparing for a larger purchase and breaking into entry headphones+AMP combo this year. Going to purchase either this BlackFriday/Cyber Monday deals or more likely Christmas depending on when the deals are stronger and I pass off cheaper.
Total budget: 400$
AMP: 250$ Audio-GD NFB-15 + shipping (EU)
Budget for headphones: 70~100$
Main Music: Iron Maiden (metal), Rihanna (pop), Michael Jackson (pop).
Secondary Music: Voltaire (dark cabaret), Avantasia (power metal), Bijelo Dugme (rock), Pegboard Nerds (dubstep), Sub6 (electronic), Astrix (psychedelic trance), game soundtracks, movies, PC use.
Headphones I found, however nearly all are rated 4.5-5 so it's a bit hard for me to find anything without digging the whole world out:
Sennheiser Momentum On Ear, 100$
Audio Technica ATH-AD700X, 97$
NVX Audio XPT100, 80$
AKG K 240 Semi-Open, 70$
Sennheiser HD 598 Over ear, 97$
Sennheiser HD 380 Pro, 115$
Anything else in 70$-100$ range that I don't know of!
Full size - Circumaural: home use only
Open/closed - uncertain still
My ear size: slightly large (in case it matters)
Other: Prefer comfort so I can use them for several hours (6~) without issue
I am not an audiophile (yet) and my knowledge is of what I have read in past few days while checking out all this stuff.
If you were me (with your knowledge), what would you pick?
