Hey guys, looking for some information:
I'm looking for my first pair of headphones, they'll be used for:
Computer - gaming, ALOT of rock/blues, guitar playing (my Vox DA5 has a line out, 6,35mm jack with speaker simulation for late night practicing).
Portable MP3 - Nokia 5800 Express Music is what I currently use as MP3, also have 2-3 classic 8-16 GB ipods lying around.
My questions: for first pair of headphones, I've been looking at the Grado SR60i, Grado SR80i, Audio Technica M50. So, price range of 100-130€. This will be 100% indoor use - home at the computer, college with MP3. What do you advise me to buy?
Would I need to buy anything else with my headphones? Are amps absolutely neccessary? When should I consider buying one? Also, what is the job of a DAC (digital -> analogue converter, that much I know, but in practical use?).
Thanks for your time
