I have no experience in audio gear of any kind whatsoever, but i have been doing alot of research lately and decided to buy some new equipment. I have still not decided whether to go for in-ear or open back or closed back but am hoping you guys can help me out.
Previously i owned Creative EP630 and was happy with it's sound. Not being able to comprehend terms like "sparkly sound" "extended highs" I would happy if you could help me choose something below 100$ and something that sounds like the creatives. I like my music to be clear and natural sounding.
I mostly listen to pop rock(Maroon5 , Beatles, Adele, etc) and some electronic music. I am not too much into Bass and figured from the research that i should not go for closed back headphones. Reviews say the RE0 are very neutral sounding earphones and that is good for me but i will mostly listen to my music from ipod and pc. I have no plans to buy an amp anytime soon. So should i go for them still? Will the Grados sound better than RE0s or are there better open backs below 100? Any suggestions are welcome.
My aim with this purchase is to be able to hear what neutral sound sounds like and then decide how i want my music to sound before i choose something costlier.
Sorry for the long post!
