I will be listening via macbook and ipod.
genre is hip-hop, rap, alternative and techno. Pretty much in that order.I will pair either one up with a fiio if need be. I want the build quality to be in your face as well.
Both get pretty good reviews overall. I overlooked the 80+ page thread on the D600's for two hours. I also looked at other threads and reviews. I feel pretty good about them overall. I am coming from $20 headphones. So the technicalities are pretty much null to me. But I want to buy once cry once if sort to speak. So I want to make the right descion first. Overall just want to have fun with them.
Open to others as well. No more than $450-$500 if you do suggest something else....
