Someone, please help me with an advice.
I’m looking for a good pair of headphones around 150-200 USD to go with my recording/listening set of choice (Audient EVO 4 and RODE PodMic, maybe some condenser mic later, too, so I would prefer those headphones to not have a lot of sound-leakage) and all the reviews I’ve seen are just… The more I look, the more confused I become.
It was much easier for me to choose an IEM then it is to choose full-size headphones too, since there was an “obvious” bang for the buck option when I bought ones and I knew exactly what kind of sound I wanted from them.
So, should I buy an open back, a closed back or a semi-open back? I don’t have much experience when it comes to full-size headphones (most of my full-size headphones were gaming headsets and such), so I really have no idea. I’m gonna use them for some light work with audio and (mostly) to listening music, maybe some non-competitive gaming.
What do I need from them: I listen to all sorts of music, from djent to jpop and such. I’d like balanced-ish, somewhat detailed sound (since I do plan on working with audio sometimes). I want them to have a detachable cable, in case it ever breaks (I can solder, but I’m not very good at it). Comfy, since I’m going to wear them for long periods at a time. Well-built, so it doesn’t break on me, since it’s going to be my only full-sized one and I don’t like sitting with IEM’s at home. Looks don’t matter, since I’m only going to use them at home and I can’t see them when they’re on my head. Impedance - I’d like it to be not very high, since Audient EVO 4’s (that I’m currently looking at buying) specs say that it can handle up to 50 ohms. Cable should be up to 3 meters (I can replace it with the different one though potentially, but that also means more money). That’s all I can say for now.
There’s just so much choice nowadays, so I feel like I actually need some advice this time. Current budget cap, overall - 520 USD (for both mic, audio interface, a cable and a pair of headphones). Also, add about 20% in price, because of my region. If you have a good audio interface or a dynamic mic (my room isn’t treated, so condenser mic is a no, for now) in mind and it fits the budget, I’m open to your advice too.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. Sorry if I it was hard to read - I’m still learning English.
P.P.S. Currently, my attention was caught by Sivga SV021 and Beyerdynamic DT770 (these don’t have a detachable cable though, so I’m very reluctant on buying them).
