Hello Head-fi community!
Looking for a new portable setup. I listen to mostly orchestral music (19th/20th century). At home I run ATH A900 through my computer. I REALLY like how these cans sound. They're just a little bit bulky for portable use (cord is way too long to walk around with!)...I also don't think the ATH A900 sound too good running directly out of my 160gb iPod classic, which is what I use on the go. I probably need a closed headphone to reduce external noise. Any suggestions? Max price is $500 total. I would be more than willing to invest in headphones AND a portable amp and LOD if needed. There are so many amps out there; it's difficult to know what to look for.
The only cans I'm considering at this point are Senn HD25...and MAYBE the AKG K271 - but those look pretty bulky like my Audio Techinicas.
Thanks in advance for your help.
