    Hi OmidelF

    Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Or Sony MDR XB1000 - There isn't really an objective answer, some would prefer the one and some the other.

    Neither of these need amplifiers or "need" a specific soundcard - just the best audio signal you can muster.

    The Sony MDR XB1000 have bigger bass, it is massive - if that is what you want then these are the one for you. If you like bass but want a closer to accurate feel then go for the M50.:)

    Another alternative is the GermanMaestro GMP 8.35d. These can handle anything you can throw at them. Highly recommended for those with a discerning ear.
