Ok, I am curious. I have not been able to find a nice "musical" set of headphones. By that, I mean, nothing seemings to be "wowing" me like I was in a concert hall.
I listen to lossless (high bit rate) files from my iPod classic. I have 3 types of amps: Fiio E6, E11 and PAVA 2 amp.
Headphones I have bought so far....HD448, HD598, Sony ZX700 and M50. All of them have burn-in. My hearing is in top-notch condition. Either the phones are too analytical that they dissect the music so that it doesn't sound like a cohesive whole where your ears concentrate on certain instruments playing while other times, the sound feels distant, not intimate...like they are faraway. Am I doing something wrong...or have I just bought the wrong phones.
I am a recreational listener and do not mix, produce, sample or whatever.
So, now I am looking at the Shures and KRK...but will these also be lateral moves? I just want a fun set that makes me feel like I bought the best tickets in the hall.
