I've been enjoying SM3, UM3X, EX1000 and FX700 and am considering venturing into full size phones for
Can an Ipod Touch and a portable (which ones) amp work well?
I like two:
1. Mid centric: as if you are in the studio with the vocalist. Not an analytical phone but a phone that details are present and easy to hear; same with #2 below.
2. V or U shaped: mid bass does not seed into mids, low extension of sub bass, high extension of treble w/o sibilance. More neutral Vs. colored sound.
I listen to pop, rock, electronic, a little of jazz and classical.
Thanks for the help.
I can third the denons, but they do like lots of current just incase you do want to give them an amp. And no tube amps, and watch the output impedance of the amps.
But I do fear they may be a bit laid back in the mids, for me the D2000 was forward sounding, but the D7000 is definitely not.
The other major contender especially for midrange is the HifiMan HE-400, and actually I think this will be your best bet.
