Very good point Kojaku.

I love my HD800. It's a great headphone. Revealing, spacious, cristal, energic sound. But it hates "bad recordings" (not always bad music) and can make you "dislike" some musics.
In the other way i love my LCD2. It makes the music sounds better than never. So called "euphonic" sound.

Had far too much time on my hands last year. Wait, WHAT, I joined in 2012, well.. Um. I've been at this for a lot longer than I thought.. 

 

Anyways, just buy a budget headphone, which you already have, so leave. Or else, you won't have any money, ever!:eek:

I also started about around the same time.  For me it was because my old bose has just gone kaput and I had no idea what to get, so a good friend of mine told me to look up suggestions here.  Unfortunately for me I got way more into than him and am now a proud owner of way too much audio equipment.  Also I have always loved to build things, so DIY was a great way to get back into that...again unfortunately for my wallet.   All of this started for me when I decided to mod a pair of Fostex T50RPs.

You get started by looking for the next best thing for your system Either an update of phone or source. Looking for a positive change in the "I never heard that in the recording before zone." In your case you could compare the classic;s output to  your computers using flac files and see what difference it might make.

Testing mess on my desk.

 

My Rega DAC has Gone. A Metrum Octave came in  and lastly a Fiio E09k+E07k combo joined my desk.

 

I'm currently testing the Focal Spirit Pro vs Spirit Classic Vs NAD HP50 and Im comparing to my Ultrasone Signature pro and my HD800. :rolleyes:

Ain't much but it's home. 

At some point I'd like to desk/wall mount the monitors ( or trade/sell them for some 1440p goodness ) and pick up a nice DAC/AMP combo dedicated for headphones, nothing wrong with the M38 for my speakers, but for Headphones it's very noisy and not in the right way. A lot of hissing as you'd expect from a cheaper computers front panel jack. 

 

 

iTunes> Denon M38 > Mordaunt-Short / Philips Fidelio X1

When I'll have a definitive opininon I'll give it in the SIg pro appreciation thread ;) .

 

This headphone remains my favorite closed headphone and my favorite complement for my HD800. That been said, the focal headphones and the Nad represents IMO a tremendous value and they're maybe "better/cleaner" headphones. If you already own a sig pro , I don't think that purchasing a Focal Spirit pro is really useful. the FSP has a more balanced sound with definetely more mids but overally the SIg pro stays a more impressive headphone that brings something really special to the table. The choice can depend of what you usually listen to . Focal Spirit pro & Classic and the NAD Viso HP50 are really impressive and my preferred is the FSP by a slight but real margin because of its perfect balance and its overally crisp and clear sound while the NAD & the Spirit Classic offer a more relaxed (Focal Classic) or slightgly colored ( NAD) warmer sound.  THe Sig pro is less neutral than the FSP but sound so real to my ears with more detail, more depth, more textured sound , thicker bass, crispier treble. it's sooo engaging to my ears. Focals sound a bit too polite and the NAD is slightly too mellow compared to the Ultrasone.

 

 

My 2 cents.

Here's my improvised stand up computer station next to my bed:

 

 

I've been on that clothing drawer for three months but I just got a proper desk that I'm going to jack up (*May 20th edit, actually I'm changing place again, and I'll still be desk-less). No chairs to be found in my room.
