Go to Guitar Center they have a rack full of high end headphones you can try each one. Just bring your music so you can jack them headphones and check each one out xD

Just use their recommendations and opinions as reference.

Everyone is a solipsist when it comes to choosing audio equipment. You need to learn how to choose for yourself.

Yeah, the tornado took out the only guitar/music store with that kind of merchandise. So that idea isn't looking too good. frown.gif

I would learn to choose for myself and possibly wouldn't have even made this thread if the tornado that hit in May didn't take out everything that is music and guitar stores with that kind of equipment.

This website has a lot of graphs you can look at to see how headphones compare.

If you didnt make a choice yet, the Ultrasone Pro 550s are an excellent choice for what you are looking for. It has a nice 50mm driver that offers plenty of bass and it even has a great sound stage for closed headphones. They usually go for about $150.

I have a pair of Audio Technica A-700 and they are the best headphones I have ever owned.

That is the way to go. Honestly untill you spend hours playing a game on the computer you will never know if you like one over the other. varitiy is the spice of life!
