It matters what kind of sound you are looking for. I did a ton of reading on what's the best headphone set to get for myself, and after weeks of looking, only online. I can't test any in my area. I bought the Sennheiser HD598, because so many people loved them.
Well, I didn't. They can't handle bass at all, you can hear the phones straining to play normal music with just a basic bass beat. I could hear them have problems with so many things. Also, they weren't that comfortable to me. I tried for almost a month, to get these to play better, with no luck.
I sent them back, and bought DENON AH-D600 Music Maniac Over-Ear Headphones. These are good headphones, and they are comfortable, and you can wear them for hours. I'm pretty happy with them. They have good bass, but not the kind of bass the rattles the brain, that's a shame too. I think for that kind of deep punching bass, you need on ear headphones. But pretty much any kind of music sounded good, and I use them for movie watching at night.
I have a pair of $20 Bluetooth Soundbot on ear headphones, that can really drop the bass. It's not hard punching, but it can be very deep, and impressive, depending on what you are listening to.
My home system, has 1 pair of Cerwin Vega VS150's and VS 120's. These speakers, can make it seem like Godzilla is walking around outside of your house. The bass punch will rattle your heart in your chest, all while the woofer barely moves. 400 watt speakers, 100watt receiver. The bass in Godzilla is off the charts, and incredibly fun.
Would love to find some headphones that can sound as good as that, but the Denon's get the job done. Just not as bass punch heavy is my Cerwin Vega's.
