Hi there. I stumbled upon this site last week when I was searching for high end headphones. My first and current impression is that these people really know their stuff, and care about sound.
The last couple of months, I've given more and more interest in high end sound quality. I have always loved music and listen to music all day everyday, but I never gave much thought to the quality of the music and never spent much money on equipment. But now I want to invent in high end headphones. The reason I want headphones is mainly because I enjoy listening to headphones more then speakers , but also beacuse I have people around me I need to take in consideration, both neighbours and family.
I have no experience with with HIFI and what kind of equipment or technology is best or needed to get good sound. I know that you need a amplifier, but that's it.
I looked at the ranking board for over -ear headphones and saw Audeze LCD2 at first place and fell in love after reading about them and watching reviews. When I first decide to invest in new equiptment and gear. I can only settle with the very best(that I can afford ofcourse, lol)
So what I'm wondering is, if any of you could give me some advice if I should buy these or not and what kind of other eqipment is needed to optimal the quality with these headphones. Preferably cheaper then the price on the headset:S
Some information that might be useful:
I have a very wide specter of music taste and like almost every genre of music.
My experience with music listening is mainly just mp3 files and spotify, but ofcourse I know I need to step it up abit if I want to get full use of headphones like LCD2.
I'm also wondering if it's possible to use use a computer as a media center for headphones like LCD-2, if I get a good amplifer, sound-card and use FLAC-files for for example.
