I will shortly introduce myself, I am a young (23 years old) hifi lover and formally I only listened to floorstanding/monitor speakers with good results. Price tag was very different, from 100 bucks to around 6000 bucks which was the most expensive kit I had. I live in The Netherlands, and I'm searching for a new portable headphone for around 40 dollars.
It's just because I want to enjoy my music without spending lots of money on new loudspeakers/amplifiers and so, I just don't have enough money to buy it. This seems the best opportunity for me to listen @ high quality sound without breaking the bank.
I did order some JVC HA-S160's also know as "flats" yesterday, but I don't know if they will satisfy me enough. They are only 13 euro's, and I have a little more to spend if there is a much better choice.
I also looked at the AKG K420/K430's and the Sennheiser PX100II's, which are about 3 times the price of the JVC's ( around 37 euro's a piece ). Does the AKG's or Sennheisers just sound so much better?
Maybe there are more nice portable headphones which you guys can suggest in my budget?
Please keep in mind, I'm quite new in this market of headphones, but I know a lot about speakers/amplifiers and so on.
