Well, I bought a pair of Ad700's for gaming purposes mainly, and I am awestruck the by the quality of a decent pair of phones compared to $20 sonys i had. But now, like I'm sure many others have, I'm craving more! I use these for movies, games, music, every use imaginable. I don't really have a source, just a onkyo receiver and a Zune. I listen to everything from pink floyd, to underground hip hop, to classical. So I am wondering where i go from here...
1) buy an upgrade pair that is not neccesarily for a certain kind of music for around $200 (thinking shure srh840's?)
2) buy an actual source that will be good for the time being (that I'll have to upgrade later)
3) buy an actually good amp/dac that will last me through many phones/upgrades
4) buy different phones that are good for different things (one for classical, one for hip hop, so on..)
Just wondering what method you guys used to ease yourself into the hobby while on a budget? Most cost-effective and satisfactory path to work myself into getting the most out of my phones/wallet
