Hi everyone, I'm a big audio noob. I'm using Apple earbuds from years back and now I'm ready to buy my first pair of quality headphones.
The headphones I'm currently considering are the HD 58X, HD 6XX, and HE 4XX. And no matter which one I choose, I will pair it up with the Massdrop O2 + SDAC DAC/AMP.
I listen to dance/electronic, hiphop/rap, oldies, pop, rock, and soundtracks from time to time. I'll also use it for FPS gaming, but it's certainly not a priority (90% music, 10% gaming).
I'm not a bass head, but I will definitely appreciate clear, punchy bass in my hiphop/rap music. Also, I would like headphones with good soundstage and imaging when I listen to music such as Queen or Bee Gees. Other than that, I can't say much since I don't have any reference points/experience with quality headphones.
Personally, I would prefer to get a pair of headphones and be done. And lastly, to those who prefer HE 4XX/HD 6XX to the HD 58X, is the price difference worth it?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading!
