I am definitely a noob, I am bout to order the Sennheiser HD 650 and buy the Asus Essence for my computer , I think amps are really expensive.. Do you think the cardas cable upgrade is worth it if I am only using the essence?

Cables should be the last thing upgraded, after every other part of the chain. Cables are for tweaking.

This is probably one of the most, if not the most, impressive, insightful, well organized, and extremely helpful threads on this site. And I've read A TON of helpful threads (that's why I finally made an account)

you might wanna start your own thread for that. Sennheisers would be a good choice, don't do Beats by Dr. Dre, I had a thread for that you might wanna check it to see some opinions from people who've used em.

Welcome to Head-fi!

Take a look around a bit at the different threads in your price range, and then start your own thread when you've narrowed down your choices a bit more and have questions related to the choices you have left. Also, be wary of people just randomly tossing out the names of different headphones, and don't be afraid to ask questions about comparisons and experience.

Happy listening.

In a lot of ways, I prefer T-Pain to gangsta rap. Why glamorize senseless violence, except against bad singers voices.

Thanks for the useful post. Is really helpful for someone who's going to buy his first headphones ^_^

I think it might be important to add how one should upgrade. Ultimately as noobies we dont initially have a nice DAC or dedicated headphone AMP. Maybe the best bang for your buck upgrade path for low impedence and high impedence headphones? Would it be better to upgrade to a nice dedicated DAC if using low impedence headphones like grados first? If one initially buys high impedence headphones like HD-650s does one upgrade the AMP before the DAC?

I have come to the conclusion as I read and re-read the forums that the best initial bang for the buck is to get the best headphones you can afford. Assuming you do that, then what? Will one always benefit from getting the amp next or dac and does it depend on low or high impedence phones? Certainly one could argue and say just get an amp/dac combo to start like the compass. Personally however something like that will be replaced rather quickly and I would rather get a nice dedicated DAC or nice dedicated amp to start and slowly build up with quality parts.

hope I made sense here.
