New headphones, ~£300 budget

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

First post so be gentle please. I have recently had the desire to upgrade from my Grado SR60's which I have thoroughly enjoyed for 3 years. I am reaching for something higher up the headphone scale so my budget for the new pair is £300. From reading a number of threads and given this budget the headphones that are at the top of my list are the Sennheiser HD650's and Grado SR315S, I also have the option of purchasing some ex-display Denon D5000's for around the same price. The two things I like to hear most when listening to music is separation of instruments and strong bass. I currently have a JDSLabs Cmoy v2.03 and Fiio E10 for amping and DACing. Any suggestions for which one to go for? Am I likely to hear a night and day difference with respect to the SR60's?

For rock, nothing really Beats the value of an SR60, so it won't be night-and-day. However, there can be an improvement, and if you like the way your Grados sound you'd probably want to look at the Grado you have listed (I believe you mean the SR325is, not the SR315s).
