What next? Where do I go from here?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Basically trying to figure out where to go next? Should I get new headphones or invest in amps or sources? I've been itching to find new headphones that may open my ears to the next level with trance/electronic. At the same time feel like I may be missing out on different aspects of audio with various other amps and sources. Budget is not really a factor as to quality or diversity of sound. What would you do?

 

Current Equip:

 

Main amp and source

Jdslabs CmoyBB 2.03

Sansa Clip+ Rockboxed

 

Sansa Clip Zip

Dell PC Realtek On Board

Ipad 2

Iphone 3G and 4/4S

Ipod Mini 2G

Galaxy S2

 

Headphones:

Monster Turbine Pro Copper

Audio Technica Ad700

V-Moda Crossfade M-80

Samson 850

 What is your real budget here? or is let's say a $10,000USD spend just small change to you? smile.gif

Those headphones all look neutral to bass-light. Maybe you could grab bassy headphones for your trance/electronic?

@gwarmi: I am not looking at a price standpoint but more so searching for different audio experiences. I definitely feel like I may not appreciate a high end system (if price had a factor in audio quality) at this time when there are probably so much inbetween. I would take any considerations. I hope that explains my stand point at this time.

@Eric_c: any recommendations and why?

None from me, sorry. I'm not a basshead.

 For trance and electronic, first consider a good desktop DAC/amp.

 

 The DAC will ensure that your trance collection is decoded nicely

 while the amp, if competent, will drive your selected new headphone.

 

 I recommend the Audio GD NFB5 and Nuforce Icon HDP, both

 are very good for the following headphones:-

 

 Ultrasone Pro 900 - well regarded as a deluxe electronica headphone,

 they really do render bass quite well, especially mid bass, like most

 trance focused headphones, the mids can be smothered sometimes

 for vocals but that's the price you pay for a nice basshead headphone.

 

 Ultrasone Signature Pro - Just released, more luxurious in build

 quality and it improves on everything that the Pro 900 does - same

 drawbacks as above but this time, this headphone can convey

 very good sub bass. It's the best electronica headphone out at

 the moment in my opinion. Bit pricey though.
