I'm currently looking for the best headphone value-wise for my current iPhone 4 + unamped setup. Although I listen mostly to pop music, I don't like the bass to be too heavy. I'd prefer better voice and instrument detail separation.
I've used the B&W P5's for about 2 weeks, but I had to return them because I couldn't stand turning the volume to at least 55% on my iPhone just to hear the full music. I know my hearing would get worse if I kept going at that rate.
I am leaning towards the MTPC, but I'm not sure if it being paired with my setup has any major difference than if I was to use a Klipsch S4. I am using Spotify for all my music listening, so the bit rate is around 320KB or less.
I'm okay to spend around $250 on the headphones, but I don't want to be spending more if I won't get any huge benefits using an iPhone 4 unamped...Any thoughts?
I'm a newbie to Headfi and this is my first post, please take it easy on me =)
