So I got Beats studios about a year ago (and they broke). So I took them back and got credit for them and upgraded to the Pros for about 100$. I had been looking at all sorts of reviews and everything said the Pros sounded great. I bought these about a week ago and was enjoying them, then I continued reading reviews and stumbled onto head-fi. Everyone who reviewed them here seemed pretty adamant that for the money these headphones were no good.
What I want are headphones that sound great, but unfortunately I am just now getting into the technical side of the discussions on headphones. To date the Pros sound better than anything I have used and I have nothing to compare to when trying to get something better.
I use an ipod touch
I buy music from itunes
So I am looking for recommendations on something I can use for casual listening that will sound great. I'm hoping to sell these Pros on ebay and upgrade to something better, but I don't want to buy another headset for 300-500$ if my 4000 song collection of 250 kbps files will still sound ok.
This seems to be the place to go for advice on anything audio, so I am hoping for some good direction on what to buy with what I have. I want to be able to plug into my ipod and listen. As it stands now I don't have room to get another music player if the ipod is insufficient for higher end listening.
I was looking at Sennheiser 650s on ebay for 350$, which seemed great? I hear those run about 500, but I don't even know if I will hear anything different with my current library.
Thanks for taking the time to help me out.
