Posted this in the 'buying new headphones' thread, but didn't get answers :/
I'm looking to replace my ATH A700's. Headphones I have in mind are:
Grado SR225i / SR325i
I really think I might like the sound signature of the grados and the senns. In my limited experience with headphones I've found that a dark signature appeals to me (the senns), and the mid-centric grado sound sounds great too. Bass isn't THAT much of a big deal for me, but I do like a bit of a thump.
I also need a suitable amp. I would prefer the amp to be cheap (obviously) and portable, as I intend to use it for both home use and any IEMs which i will definitely purchase in the near future. At the same time, I need the amp to be adequate enough for the headphones listed above! Recommendations, corrections, rants, all welcome :)
I'd like to the set-up to be under $500 in total.
Thanks for reading and somebody please get back to me soon!
