I got myself a little Christmas gift in the form of Beyerdynamic DT990 660 Ohm. It's a huge stretch for me, but I decided I deserve it. I figured with the holiday shipping grind there's no way they'd get here until next week. Turns out I was wrong; they are here right now! Now I need a proper amp so I can listen to them. I noticed B&H Photo and J&R Electronics have tons of pro headphone amps (Behringer, ART, Samson etc) but the only proper headphone amp seems to be the Fiio E9 at B&H.
I use my computer and iPhone exclusively for music. I listen to a broad variety of music but prefer hard rock and heavy metal. That said, I'm bobbing my head to Cousteau at the moment and Anamanaguchi earlier). I also have Shure srh840, Etymotic H3 and Grado sr225. I own a Fiio e11 for when I want to use my 840s with my iPhone.
Do any Head-Fi'ers know about a good place in NYC I can scope out some more good options? My budget right now is up to $150, absolute stretch would be $200 (and I mean absolute). It's also always good to know of more solid places than the famous ones in this city. Show off your knowledge of the best spots here!
