Powered by an Asus Xonar DX, which one is better? I listen to a lot of high bass stuff and barely any classical or anything with high's. A few games here and there but I don't care for super precise audio locating or whatever.

I can get the HSR1000 from a semi-sketchy amazon seller used for 40 bucks.

The sennheiser 205 HD for 38,95 new.

Any other recommendations are welcome too.

Decided on the HD 205 II.

For 40 euro's i'm very satisfied. Better bass than my Siberia V2's but slightly worse treble.

At a price difference of 30 euro's im completely fine with that trade-off.
