Hi first post!
So I've been reading what I might think is a lot of information off of these forums but it probably really isn't.
I want to buy a entry level set up headphone/amp and ideally I'd like to spend $250ish but if there's something really convincingly better for a reasonable extra amount I'm willing to dish out the cash. Just from reading I think I'm leaning towards getting a pair of Grados or MS1s and an amp like the Little Dot I+ (or any similar amp).
The big issue is that I live in Canada and product availability sucks here. Dollar's on par and there's quite the price difference comparing US sites to Canadian sites and shipping from a US site will just even the price because of shipping. If anyone knows a good reasonably priced store in Toronto, I'd really appreciate knowing where it is! The classified section on this site looks really good too just waiting for some mid-ranged Grado's to pop up.
The plus side to the MS1s is that they ship to anywhere with free shipping, but which Grado are they most similar to? And there are soooo many people modifying their headphones which I totally intend to do, but only after a while when I get used to a pair stock. Obviously DIY and modding is awesome and that alone is a valid reason, but would something like MS1s NEED modding to sound good?
This is just a quick question type of first post but really any advice on what a 1st time set up should be like would be appreciated.
