I am very new head-fi and headphones, I now have a beyerdynamic DT880 600 and a Xonar Essence STX. Coming from an HD555 user what can one do to make sure he/she is enjoying the most out of the headphones BESIDES upgrading my setup. I'm talking more in terms of, listening and interpreting what I hear from my headphone into words like some of you guys who do it effortlessly. I notice a difference from my HD555 to the DT880s, in terms of quality and bass but I can't/don't know how to go more in depth...my buddy asked me if I noticed a difference and I say yes, its more clear, and the bass is proiment but thats it I can't go more into detail because I don't know exactly what I should be listening to.
So pretend I have virgin ears and you were trying to tell/show me how to appreciate good headphones as well as good music, where would you link me to, or what would you advice?
I love music, I love good sounding music but I can't regurgitate why I like it to someone who wants to know why...I hope I'm making sense?
So basically I want to train my ears so that I hear things others won't notice when they listen through a good set of headphones. When my buddy puts on my beyers he just says its the same as my old skull candies etc...and I get pissed off cause they aren't and I want to tell him exactly why he is wrong but my argument just ends at, its more clear, and bass is better...? see lol
