I am new to the head-fi scene and am looking into buying a new set of headphones after my most recent pair of skullcandys broke down. I originally was looking for a new pair of SC's but after looking around I decided to up my investment and get a true set of audiophile headphones. The only requirement is that they are around 200$, can be run off of an Ipod as well off of a computer, are closed, so no leakage, and go around the ear. I was hoping somebody on the forum would have a suggestion in the right direction based on these specifications. An amp, while not preferred is a viable option if needed.
In terms of products I am already looking at the Audio Technica ATH M50, or the Ultrasone HFI-580. What do you think of those options?
Thank You for your responses.
