I know this has come up time and time again, and I am sorry to do it again, but I would really appreciate everyones insight. I am just starting out in the audio world am I want to start small so that when I start to get better and better headphones I will really appreciate them more than if I just got expensive ones first. Some headphones that I have been looking at are:
Beyerdynamic DT770 600ohm
Beyerdynamic DT880 600ohm
The genres that I listen to are classic rock, classical, techno, hip-hop, alternative, and things alike. Artists that I like are Coldplay, ACDC, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Bach, Mozart, George Winston, you get the just.
I don't really care if they are open or closed back because these are for home use. But I do want over-ear style headphones. I would prefer really comfortable headphones, but it is not on the top of my priorities list. I also do not have an amplifier at the moment because I am new to audio in general. I wanted to enjoy the headphones and then buy an amp so it’s kind of like I have a whole new set of headphones.
On another note, the amps that I am kind of looking at are things like the Tube Magic D1, HiFiMan EF2A, and the FiiO E09K. Do any of those look good? I want something that would work with any of the headphones above, but then later whenever I upgrade I want it to work great with less efficient headphones in the future.
$200 is kind of the top of the top of my budget right now and an amplifier is not the main priority. Other headphone requests are excepted as well. Any input is greatly appreciated and I look forward to your responses! Thanks in advance!
