Hi guys, This is my first post ever, and I live in the Netherlands, so pls don't be too critical on my grammar etc (:.
I now own earbuds which are 20 dollars, more or less, and a mp3player of 40, I think, so this is going to be a big investment for me.
I prefer SQ over everything, the rest is not very important to me.
I think am going to buy the Beyerdynamic DT880 32 Ohm + the Cowon S9 16 GB, without an amp.
First question: is the DT880 32 Ohm good without an amp? If not, which cans are?
Second: Does the Cowon S9 really have a very good SQ?
Third: Will it be a good combination, the Dt880 + S9 without an amp?
Oh, almost forgot, I mostly listen to rock, (like Joe Satriani, some Pink Floyd etc), Jazz/Funk (mostly Jamiroquai), some classic stuff, metal, pop, bit of rap, so really a lot of things.
So, If you have any experience w/ those cans or the S9, or if you know the answers to my questions, please respond(:.
If this really isn't a great idea, please help me, and post some other options. My budget for the cans is around the 300,-.
