So, looking for new, over-ear circumaural headphones and I'm not privy to the latest popular brands/models. I come from the Denon D2000s which I had since 2007-2008, but they finally bit the dust, so I'm looking to grab a new pair. Here are my listening habits/preferences:
1) Budget = $600 (I realize this is only entry level audiophile territory). Something I can drive with my FiiO E17 Alpine amp would be preferable.
2) Will be used for lossless FLAC music, HD Movies, and some Gaming. The headphones will be connected to my PC through my FiiO E17 Alpine DAC/Amp at all times. I read great things about Planar Magnetic Driver phones as well, so those are of high interest.
3) Will be used mostly in isolation, so I don't mind going either Open or Closed back headphones (albeit my only experience with over-ear headphones has been the D2000s which are closed, so I have nothing else to compare it to sadly).
On a side note - how does stock on Drop work? They get a full "run" and then it's gone permanently or? Also, any Canadians here know what shipping costs are like and if there are import fees/duties?
If any more information is needed to help suggest some headphones to fit my preferences, I would be happy to add more. Right now, one of my top picks so far is the Senheiser HD 660S V2, but I'm still not sure.
