Need help picking my first good headphone.
I live in serbia our options are limited so I have reached out to all local source providers for music equipment and have come up with a list that consists of well rated headphones I have found while spending time on this site the list also contains prices if I have found any and will have comments if there is a need.
SO what is my setup I have a focusrite scarlet solo second gen buss powered to drive my pod mic and be my pseudo amp and dac (plan 2 buy a dedicated amp a month or two after I get headphones & keep in mind I dont have access to stuff like atom and schiit so my brands are limited to like yamaha or some shit topping maybe ). they feed into my asus x370 prime pro witch is supposed to have great built in sound card and japanese capactors whatever that difference makes. the headphones I have used:
brandless gaming toys
philips buds that dont go insite the ear < milion times better
sony mdr v 55 < million time better than the buds, logic was “dj make good bom boom so he know what phone good”
also have a shitty suround with normal speakers and a sub woof that fcks my table and ears if I turn it up.
I have used the sonys for like 10 years until the plastic for the articulation the T looking part decided to not plastic anymore and snapped one day when I was putting them on like they didint even exist.
what Im looking for in headphones:
Il be mostly listening to music and playing games. the music is mostly soundcloud youtube and spotify but i do have some songs in flac and opus that I love: will give some examples from youtube of what I like but spoiler I listen to fucking everything I have like 1500 songs on my youtube.
my main focus for the phones is music I dont care about competitive edges in games nor if I will have slightly better ambiance, any headphone that has good music reproduction will beat any amount of game advantage in my book.
I have only used closed back headphones so have decided to try open back for the first time (the list has some closed back that people say are good but only if they are better than the open back significantly).
I dont care much about comfort as long as they wont shear my ears off im good.
would like to spend around 150 euro but can stretch if the quality difference is big enough
also its almost black friday so prices fluctuate if I find out something new I will edit or post in comments
if you need other info that i didn t list here i will edit the post or add in comments.
SO I guess its time for the list
a little thing also in the list there are some phones with no price witch means i didnt find them if there is another reason like not available till december price unknown I will add comments
