The only standard I have to judge music quality right now is through $10 Sony earbuds I got like two years ago, and I REALLY want to hear music as beautifully as most of you say you do. And, reading reviews and everything, the D5000 seems to be what I'm looking for, good for dubstep/vocals/acoustic.
Though, I know the difference in sound from Sony earbuds to the D5000's would be HUGE, but some people say not to spend so much on your first pair of headphones, and to first become seasoned with ''your'' type of sound. The thing is, I see it as a waste of money to spend time experimenting first, when if the D5000 doesn't work out, I could sell/return it.
I'm hoping for some opinions on if you should really go all-out of your first hi-fi HF/set-up?
