Ok let me start by saying I am a NOOB at this stuff but VERY interested and learning fast.
I currently have Sennheiser HD 280 pro and listen to my music through my ipod touch 99% of the time. Well im ready to move up to higher quality :) I am looking around the $300 (may be able to talk the wife into ALMOST $400). I realize the ipod is not the best source but its what I have. Let me say I did alot of looking on the forums and decided to try a portable amp just to see what it was like. I just bought a PA2V2 because it was inexpensive for me to just TRY one out ( may have been a waste of money we will see).
So what do people recommend for Headphones in that price range? I like the Sennheisers because they isolate VERY well. I listen to music a lot at night and dont want to bother the wife to bad lol, but it is not a deal breaker if they dont isolate well or at all. I care more about how the sound and performance in general. I listen to mostly listen to rock music so I like clear bass from drums and things like that but do listen to some blues and as well.
Also I realize I will most likely need an amp for the new set and I'm ok with that. I would also like suggestions in that department to (seperate budget for that but lets not get crazy).
Any help would be great.
