Newbie here, I am under the assumption low impedance headphones are better with portable amps. Please correct me if I'm wrong cuz I am still deciding
whether I should get the DT990 (600 ohmversion) of higher impedance or the Shure 940 lower impedance.
I don't tend to be home too often but mostly study in a quiet place(university student here). So I need a fullsize headphone I can bring with me during my numerous study sessions. I will definitely have a portable amp with me, either the Fiio E10/11 combo or a JDS labs c42.
So please give me some advice. My budget is roughly $300 for headphones and sub $200 for amps so $500 total. And if there are better headphones to get let me know. My taste in music is mainly classical metal(quite detailed music basically) so I basically want neutral headphones, no extra bass or anything, just headphones that let me listen to what the artist intended me to hear.
Get the Shure SRH 940 and this amp while is it still on sale for $49:
If you also need a portable Dac too--this is an option (for 3x the current price of the Airhead):
