"in the market for good headphones as I do not own any truly good quality ones yet..."


What headphones are you thinking of getting? Have a brand you're interested in?

Thanks for the welcome wishes! I've spent so much time reading all the forums. I don't really have much to contribute, there are some incredibly knowledgeable people on the forum and tons of great information.  As far as headphones go, I would love a pair of AKG Q701s.  From what I've read to get the most out of them means quality amplification which also means quality dollars.  I think the best thing I've learned while reading hundreds of posts is that headphone listening is so individual so the main thing is to start listening and the more experience you have with headphones the better chance you have of finding a sound that you love.  So, today on Ebay I bought a pair of sennheiser HD598's.  I will be plugging them into my NAD amplifier at home to listen to records and CD's.  I am excited to give them some good listening.  Other "high end" headphones I want that are worth mentioning (despite mixed reviews on this forum):

 

Denon D5000

Beyer T5

Beyer DT770 (maybe my next purchase, my local stereo shop has the 250 ohm version on for $179)

 

I would love to hear a HD800 or an LCD2, but I honestly am not sure if my ear is discerning enough to really enjoy what those headphones have to offer until I do some more listening.

 

Oh! I also bought a pair of Yuin PK2's to use with my iPod (50$ on eBay), I'm REALLY excited for those!  I also want to try the PK1's when I can get a suitable amp, I would love to have a really nice ultra-portable setup.  Oh! and speaking of portable, I also want a pair of HD-25II's I hear those are great sounding headphones for the money.

 

Excited!

Welcome to Head-Fi.
 

 

Just letting you know, of all the higher end headphones that I have introduced the uninitiated to, the LCD-2 was always the one that immediately floored them, like Wile E Coyote running into a painted brick wall.  Point is you don't have to be particularly discerning to notice quality when its screaming in your ear.

HD800 is more subtle and takes paying attention to the details (especially with Classical music) before its quality creeps up on you like a simile.
