I understand that im picking an old subject that keeps coming back on these forums quite frequently.
I got a problem with my AKG's, I know that decent headphones need equally decent amp but when it comes to these they need a powerplant...
Im using Project Headbox 2 to amp them temporairly, and they got flat bass and operate at 70-80% of volume I would like them to operate.
I tried many amps and a few headphone amps and so far only Leben CS300 and Luxman made them sound like our Austrian designers intendent. The problem is quite obvious - aka my budget since I can spend 800$ tops for a headphone amp.
I dont have an option to try headphone amps suggested by most of akg users here on head fi, none of local shops have them in stock.
Im eager to buy Heed Canamp, but since i havnt got a chance to lisen it I got few questions about the Heed/AKG combo.
How does it perform with trip-hop, experimental, electronic, dubstep, dnb music? (I'll name few favorites of mine: Burial, Massive Attack, Lamb, Portishead, Pendulum)
How does it handle volume? I like to lisen to loud music, most people I know cant stand the volume I use.
If there are diffrent amps more suitable for my needs please suggest them.
