If you are looking for a music headphone. ATH M50. I CANNOT and I repeat, CANNOT, recommend them enough. Just be sure to burn them in. Decent for FPS as well, I use it for BFBC2 and the explosions sound very nice. But for music, you cannot beat it for that price. Heck, even more expensive headphones have a hard time beating it.
I'm going to agree.

I love my M50s.

Op : I have only heard the little dot 3, but that 2 looks a nice price provided its real and functional!!

Edit: If you listen to classical at all, the 650s would be like ice cream! Or just order a bunch on a CC and return what u don't like. :/
I'm assuming that by ice cream you mean that it would sound bad?

What? Who doesn't like ice cream?! The HD600s excel in classical music.

I can't get over how ugly the AD700's are.. the 900's are okay because they have a steel colored grate and black headband.

So.. I guess that I have narrowed my choiced down to either the higher end HD600/650 Sennheisers.. with a small amp or the AD900's.

I can find a link on my own. I was kinda hoping for a quick n dirty comparison.

Edit: Those specs tell me nothing of the 595s sound signature. OP: headphone.com's a great place to get an idea for that stuff. Head-Fi too, but you can get lost for days in there. Proceed with caution...look how much confusion we've created for you on an Overclock forum!!

Lol! The 580/600/650's most definitely do not mess themselves or slop about! However, they will sound more laid back, more tame, less in your face than a more forward pair like Grados.

I'm leaning towards some Beyers given your choice in music. Either the 880s or 990s depending on whether you like a curve in your frequency tastes. 880s are more neutral than 990s.

They will serve you well for gaming because of their comfort level, something the AT a900s simply cannot match.

You might look into a pair of Ultrasones too. Iirc, they do well without an amp. Fwiw, I didn't care for a pair my friend had...too...boring? I wish I could remember the model...ill ask.

I would recommend going for the higher ohm versions of any of these. People like to exaggerate the need for an amp. Its still going to sound good, just not as good as it can sound. But this way you have the option of an overall better experience once you do find that amp of your life...oh it will be so sweet when you blow on her t00bs for the very first time...
