So I'm pretty brand new to these forums, I've read several articles about cheaper DAC and amps. I just ordered my first ever set of higher quality listening devices (UE 4 pro). This is coming from only ever listening to like $20 headphones/iems. I'm be using them periodically as stage monitors using Avioms, but primarily I'll be using them listening to music on my laptop, which I've read, laptops have pretty bad output.
Anyways, I'm looking to spend about $150 to get the most out of my UEs (should be shipping Aug 29!!!). Ultimately, I'm a complete sound newbie when it comes to iems, but I can definitely appreciate good sound and tone from guitars (I own a Taylor 914ce), so I'm hoping my investment will sound like night and day from my cheap iems I've been using.
Any input is appreciated.
