Hey everyone, I was hoping for a little advice from the knowledgeable folks here on headfi. I'm looking to make a step up and purchase a higher quality headphone. After some reading, it sounds like these contenders should be on my short list:
Audio technica athm50
Beyer dynamic dt 880/990 250 ohm
My current set up is an iPod classic into a Headstage arrow 12he amp. My current phones are ksc75's, Re-0's and Grado sr60's. I listen to a bit of everything, mostly indie stuff, but also like punk, jazz and even some hip hop.
I like lots of detailed highs and bass, and since I have the grado's, was thinking the athm50's would be a nice complement for when I want a bit more isolation. But, the beyers and akg's are very compelling. Any advice on what my next purchase should be would be greatly appreciated as there is no place around here (Cleveland, Ohio) to audition higher end phones. Thanks in advance for any advice.
If you want good bass, but cans that do much more and do it well, get the Ultrasone Pro 750 or HiFi 2400.
