New Head-Fier
Dec 11, 2012
Hello everyone, I am new here (literally just made my account) and I need some help in deciding what headphones to get!
I am a huge newbie when it comes to audio and my recent pair of Turtle Beaches broke, so I decided that I would save up and buy a really nice pair of headphones, but the problem is which one I should buy. I'm trying to find a pair for what I do everyday on my computer, which is listen to music and play games.......lots of games. I listen to a many genres but I mainly listen to alternative, dubstep, electronic and rock. I plan on getting an Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card after Christmas, which I've been wanting to do for a while now but not having a job puts a strain on my budget. I need something that is comfortable as well because I wear glasses.
My options so far have been:
-Audio Technica ATH-M50
-Beyerdynamic DT-770
-Beyerdynamic DT-990
What I'm mainly looking for:
-Good bass (Not muddy, clear, etc...)
-Good for gaming and music (alternative, dubstep, rock, electronic)
-Either Open or Closed
-Good build quality
-Comfortable for hours on end 
Price range: $100-250
I'm open for any suggestions as I'm totally lost right now and don't really know what to look for, so any help would be great
