After months of thinking about buying new things and then realizing it might not be worth it (I guess most people here have feeling that way sometimes). I've decided it's time to upgrade my current audio equipment.
This time I only need headphones. I plan on upgrading both DAC and amp at Christmas but let's focus on the headphone part for now.
I'm from Europe and prices differ a bit here. I'll say what my budget is but I think it's better to suggest models and then I'll look if my wallet can afford it. I have 800€ to spent and that can get me a brand new pair of Sennheiser HD800, Beyer T1, Ultrasone Signature Pro, Denon D7000...
Again, that would be +$1000 but I'd rather buy whatever-it-is in Europe. Custom taxes hit very hard where I live if I buy overseas.
So now, the important stuff. I mostly listen to all genres but classical (like it, tho), jazz or blues. I'll say my favourites would be electronic (house, dance, trance, hardcore), pop, rock and some rnb. Here are a few examples of music I like listening to:
