I know there is a lot of threads like this but I have been reading for days now and I cannot decide on the right set of headphones for me ao I said I ask myself directly.
I am looking for suggestions for an upgrade to my Sennheiser HD205 headphones.
I am in no way an audiophile but I am really getting into good quality sounding music and I am looking for a set of headphones that will sound amazing.
I will be mainly using them at home listening to music on my laptop and ipod.
I listen to all kinds of music such as;
Trance, House, Techno, Chillout, Ambient, New Age, Rock, POP, Classical, Hip Hop, Reggae
I am willing to buy an amp such as the Fiio E11 to improve the sound if necessary.
I think closed cans would be best for me as I was told open cans can leak sound quite badly but I am open to opinion on this.
Some of the headphones I have in mind are;
Audio Technica ATH-M50
Denon AHD 1000
Sennheiser HD558 (I know these are open but I would consider these if the leakage was not too loud)
I am looking for a pair that will sound noticeably better than my HD 205's even to my untrained ears and I am willing to buy an amp to aid in this if the headphones require it.
My budget for the headphones (not including the amp) is 200 euro (I live in Ireland)
Any suggestions welcome
