I need help with new headphones.
My budget is $ 200 or Rs 12000 (can extend it up to $ 250 or Rs 15000).
I have never used good quality headphones before (mostly used in ear earphones).
I'm new to headphone world.
Please excuse me if i use wrong technical terms.
I need it for movies, music and gaming.
I listen wide variety of genres. I'm not much of a basshead though. So it will be fine if bass is not too much. But it should be present significantly along with treble.
I play fps games where footsteps and directional sense must be good.They Must be Comfortable enough for prolonged usage.
The surround sound with movies should be good.
I will be using them at my home mostly. So i do not care if they are open or closed.
i did a bit of research and made a shortlist
Here are the options i'm looking at:-
1. Sennheiser HD 598
2. Audio Technica ATH-M50x
3. AKG Q 701 Quincy Jones Signature Reference-Class Premium Headphones (Only if they are available for less than $ 200 in india. Current Price is $ 300 here)
4. Sennheiser HD 558
I'm open to any other suggestions.
1. How good are HD 598 compared to HD 558. Are they worth the price difference ?
2. Can i use the above mentioned headphones with my samsung phone or other portable devices ?
3. If i can use them with portable devices, will they sound good enough without amp ?
