It is the best part wink.gif

Edit: Actually it is the overall sound that is the "best part" but yes they have a magnificent sense of space and instrument placement due to the open back design.

I am in the U.S., near NYC (Connecticut). I wish I could go try out headphones but I have no idea where they are carried.

Alright then you should be fine with it ;)

I would have thought there were a lot of places where you can try out gear in NYC (i don't know how long it takes for you to get there)

maybe ask around on here and go out on a day you aren't busy.

If paired with a good source/amp, it's pretty good

Budget? Did you already have a DAC or not?

How much are you willing to spend?

I do not have a DAC, nor do I truly know what that is. My budget is under $200 ideally, really depends on value.

 

Any recommendations for the noob?

Digital to analog converter. I don't know which is your best choice at that price though.

You better off with DAC/amp combo, perhaps Fiio E10/E17 will be a good choice

If i go with a tube amp, would I need a DAC as well or are there combos out there?

post #29 of 29

for $200 just get schiits new combo. makes the most sense as they are actually pretty powerful
