If you're willing to listen to a neutral headphone, K7XX is fantastic. Really.
Assuming that you don't have an amp, (which, if you do, you may as well find either a HD6xx or a DT880), you're quite limited.
Open back headphones give you "better soundstage" in general. These headphones include the
These headphones are a pretty good "bang for the buck".
And of course, the obligatory ATH-M50x.
Unless you've been listening to complete shit, these headphones aren't amazing. In fact, for the price, they almost feel underwhelming. It's a shit closed back with average mids and average highs. It doesn't actually excel at anything--and that's what makes it an amazing all rounder. You're probably confused--I just told you that they're not amazing, but yet you say it's an amazing all rounder?
As much as we can create headphone recommendations for you, it's ultimately up to you to choose your own purchase. Consider this:
What genre do I listen to? If I listen to EDM songs, I might find the V shaped headphones with amazing highs and amazing lows better than a neutral pair of headphones. If I listen to orchestral and classical, I might wanna check out the K7xx with it's amazing soundstage and neutral sound signature.
The 598C's are the closed version of the 598's... may have been a typo but wanted to clarify that.
I do enjoy many EDM genres but mainly funk and jam / phish. Either way, I do need it to be crisp but I'd be willing to sacrifice a bit for some solid bass. I hope that you can make a recommendation based on this and some pictures of my lifestyle. [moderated]
M40x sound way better than M50x.
