Recently, I bought an Audio Technica ATH-M50 and I didn't like the sound quality of it. The trebles were too piercing for my tastes, the recessed mids bothered me, and the bass was a bit over kill. They were also not comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. I eventually returned these.
I'm looking for a pair of headphones that are good for pop, classical (lots of piano), etc. and not so much heavy metal / rock. Basically, the Audio Technica ATH-M50 was not good enough.
The Sennheiser HD650 seem pretty good for what I need, but I can't seem to figure out which amp to get with it. I looked at several forum posts and I'm thinking about getting a FiiO E7 + E9. Is that powerful enough to drive the HD650's? Do I need the E9 if I'm getting the E7?
I plan to use these for iPhone 4 (music in lossless format) + computer w/o good sound card (onboard)
