I'VE DECIDED TO UP MY BUDGET TO $800, AS I'VE BEEN CONSIDERING THE HIFIMAN HE-4+EF5 COMBO
In April I'll get some money due to my 18th birthday, and I really want a good home rig, as I can never hear music on my speakers.
I want a pair of full-size headphones, an Amp and a DAC. The Amp and DAC may be a combo, but it isn't necessary.
I listen to a lot of different music. I'd primarily say rock, but it can't be a Grado as I already have SR60i's, and they really only work great with rock.
I also listen to some hip hop, some pop, quite a lot of acoustic music and a lot more.
I'm looking for something that has deep bass, as in low frequencies, not as in "Hello, your ears are no longer working properly"-bass.
I've had my eye on quite a lot of different things, but the more I read the more insecure I actually get, because there always seem to be a better alternative according to one person, but a completely different opinion from another.
I've looked at:
Haven't looked at too many headphones, as I really don't know what to go for. I've looked a little bit at the Beyer DT770/600 ohm though.
Little Dot MK III
AUNE Mini DAC
Musiland Monitor 01 US
Does anyone have any recommendations? Preferably complete rigs, but "part" rigs are also welcome, as long as there's still money left for the thing(s) missing.
