I currently own the HD 598's and I have for a few years now, but I want something more expensive that's closed due to household background noise. Since I'm going closed I'm willing to pay the price for the 177X in hopes that the soundstage is even wider than the 598 or dt 770's. I've been mostly listening to rap/hip hop or electronic genres. I was wondering if anybody would know how much better (or in detail) the 177X is compared to the hd 598's in terms of soundstage... and just about everything else about headphones I suppose like comfort. I will not be running a dac/amp with these headphones, my pc should be able to power these just fine, but feel free to leave a suggestion for a dac/amp if you think it'll give the headphones more justice compared to my on board audio.
