Hi guys, 


Newbie here! I'm looking into buying my first real headphones. I already own the QC15 for my continuous travelling but I want something for home and work. I like the closed models better. I will pair them with my iPod nano 4G - I know it's not the best but oh well. If you have suggestions in this matter too be my guest. 


My price range as you can see for my new headphones is up to $200. I mainly listen to movie scores (John Williams, Hanz Zimmer, Alexandre Desplat), Classical, chamber choir and also I mix some pop, rock and strong-vocal like Broadway recordings). 


What should I best buy? The HD558 or SRH840? (or maybe the Sony MDR-7509HD?) Will I need an amp too?


Any help here would be greatly appreciate it!
