Anyhow ... after a long reprieve of really not listening to music much I've gotten back into it these last few months. Pandora One has really opened up my horizons of new artists and music styles that I have frankly ignored for the better part of 15+ years. This may sound sappy but I really feel like I have missed out on music and now my life is better because of it. Since 1997 it has been all about talk radio and spoken word content. I work in the industry of spoken word content and I edit and assemble shows nearly every week of the year.
With that said should I just be happy with my HD 540's and my Headroom total BitHead amp for music and just focus my funds on buying CDs and possibly an amp upgrade etc. Is there really much noticeable difference in performance between the HD 540 reference and the 580/600's to make this worth it?
The majority of my listening to music from mid April to October is on IEM anyhow. Would I be better off going primo IEM SE530 or higher and an iPod classic?
