    Budget - less than $300

    Source - Schiit Vali

    Requirements for Isolation - None

    Preferred Type of Headphone - Full Sized

    Preferred tonal balance - IDK. I guess balanced but not boring. Enjoyable to listen to

    Past headphones - Astro a40s and the earbuds that come with Samsung phones

    Preferred Music -I listen to rap and alternative but the rap i listen to isnt like trap but more focused on vocals and not a hard bass line. like gambino, chance, New Eminem, and twenty one pilots. Example: ,

    Mostly Looking for Clarity and sound stage. Really want a nice crisp sound. But i also plan on gaming with these for long hours at a time so comfort is important. Looking at the dt-880/990 for beyerodynamic but the things ive heard about the treble scare me. And ive also looking at things from akg like the q701 and the k7xx but i really have no idea. much noob. please help me find a good pair of headphones

    Location- US

    The AKGs are even more treble-happy than the Beyers. BTW, there's a new Soundmagic coming in a few days, but price is TBD.

    In the meantime, the Senn Momentum v2.0 is a great choice.
