I know there are countless posts of this question even a few from me so i apologize but i just don't know when to pull the trigger! But, I just want more peoples opinions one more time before i do end up buying a new pair of headphones. I already own M-audio q40s to be my bassy headphones (with a digizoid Z02.3) and now i want a nice pair of headphones to play my other genres like Alternative, Alternative rock, Punk rock, Indie, Chill (Just to name a few: Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beck, Passion pit, Monsters and men, Even Most Rap for good vocals.) more of the genres that require great highs and mids. My highest price i can go is $250 nothing more if it needs to include an amp in the budget that's fine. Note that I am willing to buy them used though and I've seen some pretty pricey headphones go very low just because they're used so kind of anything under $500 or $450 new that i can try to find used would really help I just don't know which to pick haha I really want new recommendations! But so far what seemed interesting was: Sennheiser hd595 Grado 225 or 325 Sennheiser hd598 Beyerdynamic dt 990 or 880 shure 840, 940 or possibly even 1440 Akg 550 or 702 I know sound is definitely a preference but I just feel like i can't choose without a reliable opinion first. So if someone can help me put this to rest i would greatly appreciate it Also it doesn't matter if they are opened or closed Just whichever is best for the mids and highs and those genres! Thanks guys!
