After extensive investigation and reading of the forums and sites I decided to purchase Denon - 7000, ($700). Now this is my first shot at high end headphones. I listen to mostly techno eastern european, up beat music, pop, and some rock.
My other experiences have been...
Monster Turbine, the best sounding headphones I own.
Bose in ear, decent, and way better then anything I used previously
Sony MDR-V700 I have had these things forever. They are great for what income I had growing up. I originally got them for 150. Once I purchased the monster turbines and realized they sounded better then these I knew I needed a better pair.
I hear I need an amplifier with these headphones. I can't tell the difference between the higher quality ones to the 50-100 buck ones. Is the price really worth what you get? I would appreciate some help on this. Also should I upgrade my sound card for these? I can do it on my home computer, my work one... well Ill just have to use the amp.
