Let me start my saying the old cliche, long time reader, first time poster.
I've come into a bit of bonus money, and I'm looking to upgrade my phones.
My current bundle are a pair of sennheiser 558's with a fiio e7.
I'm thinking about a pair of AKG q701 (really like the white colour)
The cheapest I can find (I'm Australian) is $380, then I came across a pair of hd650's for $390 on ebay from a hong kong dealer (99% rating).
I seems that the hd 650 is a notch above since the regular price is $500
Or should I forgo both of these and upgrade my amp? Maybe get the e9 since I already have the e7?
I really like the idea of some all rounders since my taste in music is very eclectic (although my favourite would be orchestral music) and I want to watch movies and play games too.
As a side note, if both are very similar in quality, I would like the pair that sound the most different to what I already have, just to change things up a bit.
