Trent here,

16 years o' age,

Driving a pair of hd650s with a crack, hifimediy sabre, and foobar. Plan to upgrade the dac asap.

I use an old ipod with lod and e11, driving Heir Audio 3.ai's for portable purposes.

I told you you'd want to bring something TO school Ethan.... I'm enjoying my iPhone 3GS 32Gb running out a FiiO E7 powering my Klipsch X10. Feels good having the best IEM in school.

I still need to get some headphone.. I haven't decided yet, but I want something that if it breaks, its not a huge loss. Anyone have some suggestions?

Grado SR80i is a fabulous choice for a open-backed 'phone. For $100, you'd be hard-pressed to find a superior. ATH-M50‘s aren't the best headphone in the world, but the dollar to performance value is good, and they don't look bad either. Plus, they're built like a tank, so breaking them would be pretty difficult.

beyer COPs would be my choice for affordable portables. you should definitely check out the Klipsch X10s on Amazon for $105 wink.gif
with a bit of amping, they're VERY impressive.

You're not going to enjoy going from a HD650 to anything under $50, let me tell you that tongue.gif

Also, going from a HE400 to them was fine and I have tried them all under $500 for a decent amount of time.

How about DIY audiophiles in high school? Any of you out there? Please? lol.

 

Lots of programmers I see, but personally hardware is much more interesting. I've only had the chance to look into DCS programming, however.
