Hello everyone, this is my first post.
I'm looking to buy a new pair of Headphones. I currently own the ATH-M50's and they're lovely, but I want something more. I mostly listen to Pop (The New Pornographers type stuff) and Indie (Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse, etc.) Maybe some Electronic and Dubstep thrown in there. I've put quite a lot of research into it and I think I've come up with the final contenders; the Denon AH-D5000's, AKG K550's and the Sennheiser HD650's, all used with the Fiio e11 portable amp paired with a fourth generation iPod Touch using a Fiio L3 line-out. I use the equ app to modify the sound on the iPod. I'll also use them for gaming and music on my Asus G74SX Republic of Gamers laptop. I'll be using these on-the-go all of the time, so I do need a portable amplifier, but can anyone comment on my speculation? I prefer a closed-back Headphone to be honest, but if the HD650's sound a lot better than I wouldn't think twice. I'm a bit of a bass head also, so I would love extra bass.
Any other Headphones or Portable Amps that I should look into for my musical tastes? Should I look into getting a completely new device for listening to music as I've heard that the iPod Touch's sound quality is horrid?
