Hey guys. A couple of months ago I bought a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 Pros - HUGE improvement over the crappy 8 dollar earbuds and cheap desktop speakers I used to use (and think were decent - d'oh)
I'm currently using an integrated audio card, a friend of mine (same guy that told me to get a real pair of headphones) said that I could get a decent improvement in audio quality with a dedicated card. Is there anything in particular you recommend for someone without any kind of real existing audio setup? What kind of improvement with this pair of headphones do you think I could expect? Or would it be better to get a better pair of headphones (from what I understand, these are pretty average quality, although I don't have experience with anything else) before improving any other equipment?
Music types I listen to (this matters, rite?):
Electronic-ish (I'll be honest, I don't know the actual musical genre of half the crap I listen to, I just listen to it)
I'm on a high school student's budget, so anything much over $100-150 is probably out unless it's really worth it. Really just recommend whatever you think is good and I can decide if I want to pay that much.
