I am an aspiring audiophile and in the last year I've ditched my low grade mp3's for lossless files and gone from Bose Triports to some Grado 60's for home and ATH-M50's for work (like that they are closed, but I much prefer the grados). I've never enjoyed listening to music so much in my life!
Now i'm ready to make a next step. Right now, I run music through either an ipod, macbook, or lenovo work computer. I 'm thinking about either making the jump to a better headphone (the 225i) or a DAC/amp (Total Bithead). Both are in the same ballpark for price. Obviously I want both, but the budget won't allow it right now.
I've done research on both the bithead and the 225's, but I wanted another round of opinions before making a decision. The two biggest questions i have are whether a macbook driving some sr60's (with such low impedence) will benefit from a Bithead, and whether some 225's without an amp will sound better than the 60s? All advice welcome and appreciated.
