I was all set on the HD650 as an upgrade to my HD555 Modified. Then I came across the SRH1840 and people are comparing them to the HD800's which are significantly more expensive. I can stretch my budget but would most likely need to consider used (Hopefully replacement pads aren't too expensive).
Mostly I listen to Pop/Light Rock, and stuff you would typically find on the radio, but favourite artists would be Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Simple Plan, Billy Joel, Elton John etc etc. I don't listen at super loud volumes and I don't listen to much if anything super heavy like death metal or even hard rock much.
I am looking for a headphone that will bring the hairs up on the back of my neck when I listen to music. I mostly listen to music on my PC which has the STX Asus soundcard in it, and my Oppo BDP93 connected to my RX-Z7. I don't have a huge budget for a separate amp and will likely have nothing if I went with the Shures. I know the HD650's have a lot of headroom and would improve with a good amp which I would likely buy at some point in the future, but I still want outstanding sound right now.
If there are any other recommendations I am open to it.
Thanks for your time.
