My question is simple (look at title)
I have just bought the AKG k702, which is my first can. The best i can do so far is a fiio e17. Ofc i can return the AKG, and possibly i will if they aren't for me, but only time will tell. Maybe in favor of the HD 650, which i also auditioned today.
Therefore also the question: Will the e17 drive the HD650 properly?
Also, what can you suggest me, if i say i really like my etymotic hf5, just want something a bit more dynamic and with better extension in both lows and highs (kno this might be the recipe of a VERY expensive headphone), but within a decent price range.
I am somewhat considering the etymotic er4p if i can't find the right cans for me, because i have learned that you get so much sound for the money with etymotic, seriously.
I mainly listen to different metal sub-genres (mostly heavy and doom) as long as the sound doesn't seem thrashy and blurred. Also i listen to a bit of jazz, a bit of alternative (like metal/rock but still neither of those), and very little classical.
Mainly i like clarity and neutrality, and the AKG does a fairly decent job, just not sure if i like the quite exaggerated highs, but hopefully they'll burn in over time (?)
Personally i like the HD650, but at the moment of auditioning i fell for the clarity and soundstage of the AKG's compared to the warmer and more comfortable sound of the HD650.
