Headphones recommendation for shows/movies

Good evening gents,

I am a current owner of a Beyer DT231. For many years, it has served me wonderfully and i am extremely pleased with it. However recently, the earpads have lost it's sponge and it becomes quite uncomfortable to wear them now.

Having enquired with Stereo, they do not carry replacement earpads for the DT231.

Thus i am now on a search to replace my headphone.

Main usage is to watch dramas/movies on my PC. I used to connect it through my creative x-fi soundcard (which is now kaput) thus i connect it to my mobo onboard sound. Looking to get a DAC soon.

Budget for replacement headphone would be around $100. Max willing to go $130s, looking of value for money buys.

Hopefully the bros can recommend something for me, headphones or DAC (or equivalent).

Thanks in advance!

Thinking of getting this DAC.

Audinst HUD-MX1

I love that it has a switch which ables me to switch from headphones to my AE5s with just a flick!



$235 from Vrzone MO.

Worth it?

I'm personally going to get a Style Audio Carat Ruby2 DAC instead for that purpose (the switch). I'm still undecided between DACs tbh...

Have yet to try a DT231, so it would be helpful if you described what type of sound you like.
