    My personal preference is the Sennheiser HD25. Im big on clarity and honesty so you may find them a little too honest for your tastes. I'm not fond of Sony cans as I've found them to be bass heavy and poor build quality.
    I'd also investigate Grado. I've heard very good things about them.
    Sorry too muddy the waters...

    First off i said below 300$ not 600$ !


    and the reason i put AKG Q701 And AKG K701 in the list is because they are in big sale ! 50% !


    so which one of these three would you pick ? which one is better in sound



    And Do I Need An amp/dac for it ? If the answer is Yes , plz tell me which Amp/Dac is best for that Headphone that u choose

    The hd25 is 199. I don't know where your looking. As for which is better I can't say I don't have a AKG headphone. But the the q701 might be better since its newer
