Headphone upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Looking for the absolute best headphones I can get for under $350 AUD / $250 USD so I can give my current headphones to my boyfriend.

I currently have ATH-M50x's with an ASUS Xonar AE 7.1 sound card.

Should I:

 - Just get a better sound card

 - Get better headphones (if so, which?)

 - Get better headphones and a sound card (if so, which?)

 - Keep what I have and buy my boyfriend a new pair of his own

 

The ones I have in mind are the Sennheiser HD599's and the ATH990Z.
