Tonight, after large amounts of Crown Royal, I finally pulled the trigger on a new pair of 2005 Beyerdynamic DT880s that I found on Ebay. I already have a pair of Grado SR-80s that I enjoy for rock, but I have found them lacking for some of the other genres that I enjoy (classical, jazz, etc.). I primarily listen to my music in FLAC format through an Auzentech X-Mystique with upgraded opamps (OPA2227s that I got from MisterX, a true class act), running into a vintage Marantz 2220 receiver. I have done quite a bit of research over the past few months, and have decided that these are most likely the best cans for my budget, but I would appreciate any reassurances that I have done the right thing (since I don't have a lot of money, and really don't want to wake up in the morning with a major case of buyer's remorse ). I would also like to simultaneously extend my thanks and curses to this fine community for leading me down this path, as I truly enjoy it, but know that it will inevitably consume a large part of my income . Thank you for your time, and please excuse my inebriation.
