I am a little new to audiophile gear and this will be my first purchase beyond my sennheiser 201's. As the title says I am looking for a headphone \ dac combo to use with my laptop (and maybe sansa clip to).
My sources :
Sansa Clip Zip
What I own :
Steel series 7H (a £20 bargain, I am aware of how poorly the audio compares at full price)
I am a little unsure if I want to go the route of IEM's instead, as they are compact and can be used in any situation, I worry about durability and sound quality for price. As really I don't listen too much when walking these days (I can get a cheap pair for running) My listening mostly happens at home and on long journeys on trains and planes. But I like how little space they would take up in hand luggage.
Any way the things on my radar are:
Some £100-130 IEM's
What are your suggestions? and whats the right split between dac and headphones at this budget point?
