After doing some research I soon realised that if i was going to invest some wedge into a decent pair of headphones, i would need a good amp and perhaps a DAC....my initial budget was completely blown out the water.
I now have about £600 to spend on everything. These headphones will be used at home, i guess open ear will be the best bet for this. Please suggest a suitable setup around this price range because im really not sure what to put more money into, the headphones and dac/amp
Music – I mostly listen to dub techno and other similar forms of deep electronic music (i run www.dubtechnoblog.com so this music is very close to my heart), for those not familiar with this sound have a listen to a few of these tracks (the first one is actually my favourite song ever) to get the idea of the sound
As you will be able to hear it’s heavy in deep organic sounding chords, pads, atmospherics and obviously nice smooth warm bass i really dont like overpowering bass, the music i listen to has very delicate sounds such as background noises and field recordings, i want to be able to hear everything, not just BOOM BOOM BOOM.
Other music styles i also listen to (mostly electronic music) – deep house, ambient, jazz, hip hop
Would really appreciate your help on this as is a huge amount of money to be spending as im not mega rich, but music is my absolute obsession and if im not at work im listening to music :)
