Hello headfiers, hoping I can get some feedback.
I recently moved to a new apartment in which the room for my music recording gear is an acoustic nightmare. A perfectly square room with thin walls. Add on to that the poor electrical outlet placement and I don't even have enough sockets for plugging in the studio monitors and all my gear without it being a fire hazard.
With that said, I'm currently looking for a nice pair of comfortable cans without too much color for mixing music. Being a lurker here for years, I have quite a few headphones already. My collection includes ATH-es7, esw9, esw10jpn, m50, Sennheiser HD-25's and a few earbud type. Most of my listening is done on my commute so these have served me well but they're all uncomfortable after couple hours on the ears. So I'm in search of full size open cans.
After a few nights of research, I'm about to pull the trigger on the HD-600's. Was looking at the 650's but most people mention the 600's being more neutral. I'll be running them out of an Apogee mini-DAC, will this be enough to drive the phones? Any other phones I should consider taking a look at?
Any thoughts would be appreciated,
