Alrighty so, heres where I am at:
I have a good dedicated source - a Denon CD player as my main use.
I have a littledot mkIII coming in with broken in amperex tubes (used here on head-fi!!)
I am looking for a pair of headphones under $400 to pair with this setup for use mainly for complicated metal and experimental jazz listening.
I have a weird taste in music, so its tough to find reviews for things specifically.
I admittedly don't know a *ton* about headphones, but have some experience (I have had a ffio e7/e9 combo, ultrasone hd-750's, and had/sold grado rs-2's - but dont like closed, and I currently use modded grado sr-80i's as my main headphones as my ultrasones are used for gaming and on the road, though my girlfriend might be buying them haha..
I really want punchy, defined bass, and really be able to hear everything happening in the mid range, I dont like anything too bright as it gives me a headache.
Hoping anyone can help that has experience with this amp/similar amps, as im not experienced at pairing amps to headphones.
Ones I've been looking at:
Beyerdynamic DT 880
Thanks for any suggestions! Id prefer 2-300 range, but willing to go 400 if its going to "futureproof" my purchase and I wont want to upgrade in a year.
