I have been borrowing my dad's Beyerdyamic DT770/80 for too long and I think it's about time I got some full size headphones of my own but it's safe to say I'm a bit overwhelmed by the possibilities.
I am looking for an open pair of headphones which will pair well with the ODAC and the Schiit Magni/O2 that deals well with pretty much all different genres. I like slamming but well controlled bass, nice vocals (the Beyers' are a little recessed) and sparkling but preferably not fatiguing highs. Unfortunately I live in an area where there aren't many places to try headphones. My nearest shop is in club Orpheus but only really as the HD700 and 800 on demo.
The cans I've been considering so far are the Sennheiser HD600, 650 and 700, HiFiMan HE-4/500, the Beyerdynamic offerings or potentially Audeze LCD2 if I can up my budget (£600/$900). I'm thinking that I might not get a great pairing with either of my current amps but that is something I can upgrade down the line.
