I've been told these are good for rock. Is this the case and if so what amp should i get. My source is my iphone or my computer. Apple lossless encoding. Are there any other headphones i should look at?
Denon AHD2000 For rock?
Yes and no. They have very good bass punch to give the kick drums an extra bit of dynamism, however the treble spikes plays extremely harshly on anything that's recorded or mastered less than ideal. It all depends on the recordings you'd primarily be listening to.
The exlectronic expo site sells em open box does that mean used?
I really can't say. When I got mine the pads were in perfect condition, and even the plastic covering some of the parts was still on. They might as well of been new.
As far as your question from the PM asking what amp tames the Denons, what exactly do you mean?
