I finally decided to upgrade from a Sennheiser HD555 (and my beloved 2005's Shure e4c) to a HD 650 and I bought a FIIO E17... the difference is incredible. (mmm... I also got a super bargain of 25euros Koss Porta Pro for using exclusively in my job desk... the HD 650 are for home)
At the beginning I had a lot of trouble in deciding which headphone to obtain, as the grado where having good reviews out there, and also the aesthetics got me. But finally I decided to go for the forever-choice from Head-fi (#4 in review) and try to appreciate really the music and begin the audiophile way.
I think I obtained a good bargain at 300 euros per the HD 650, and 150 euros per the FIIO E17 with the L9 and L30... so if I consider it necessary I could upgrade in a near future with a little more of experience.
But... I am running too much? I did a good election? please tell me what is your opinion and recommend me some adjustments. What settings are best to use in the E17 for use with the HD 650s (bass, treble, gain in 0-6-12db?...), Cable mod needed?
