Hello Head Fi forum. I'm very new to all this audiophile technology and headphones and I am looking at upgrading to a new pair of headphones. My current pair if headphones are the HD 25 ii's, but I currently don't use an amp and I use them directly from my ipod (5th gen ipod video, I heard they have the best driver out of all current ipods).
I really want a good sounding, semi portable headphone. I like over ear, just personal preference, and it must have good noise cancellation because I use these on the go all the time. The bulk of music on my ipod is electronic, but I do listen to pretty much all genres. I would like some bass, I liked the bass on the 25's, but don't keep this from recommending me another headphone. I also am upgrading to a portable amp once I get some new headphones so I would like one that would benefit from an amp, because I have heard that the 25's won't benefit as much as other headphones would. I plan on spending around 200-350$, but I can spend more if needed, because I want to really hear a noticeable difference in sound quality from my 25's.
I also am looking at portable amps, and I am going to make a thread there, but if you can recommend one for around 100-200$ in this thread that would be good too.
Thanks in advance :)
