First, I would like to thank everyone who has had a hand in keeping this forum open, so people like me can come here and ask questions. I also thank everyone who takes their time and energy to answer the many questions here no matter how poorly formed or contentious.
Second, I will try to keep my post short and allow any greater details come out if they might be helpful.
Recently my Sennheiser HD595s gave out. Thanks to me messing with the EQ on my X-Fi Titanium HD. However I have been in the market for new headphones for sometime, and have gone back and forth over the Senn HD650s.
Eventhough I am loyal to the Sennheiser brand, I want to branch out and try something different.
Enter the Grado PS500.
I hear it is the best bang for the buck and a bargain compared to the PS1000. I have ordered these cans along with the G-CUSH, since every reviewer has said to purcahse them along with it (wasn't too happy spending $45 dollars on foam).
However I am worried I may have chosen the wrong headphones for the money, can anyone here kindly put my mind at ease? Obviously I will need to listen to them first and have my own opinion, but I am just afraid I made a mistake and didn't choose a better headphone.
Secondly all I have is a portable E11 amp, and I am sure I would need a good desktop amp to drive them. Is a Little Dot IV excessive? What would be a great amp to pair with the Grado PS500s?
If it helps any. I listen to music ripped from EAC in an uncompressed WAV format, on my Sansa Clip+. As I mentioned above, I do have the X-Fi Titanium HD.
All your thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
