Hello to all a ya ;) Hope the days farin well.
I'm in the market for a fresh set of cans/amp , have had a pair of the hd 280's for something like 4 years now, un-amped.
Having spent a fair bit of time browsing and reading, the like, I've still run into a good number of potential directions and I figured you folks might be able to toss me some words one way or the other.
I listen to quite a bit of string music, electronic/ electronically inclined bits (stuff which is otherwise predominantly acoustic), and rap/hip-hop.
Like classical as well.
Ideally I'd like to find a versatile/balanced phone that leans towards thick/great bass (Goood stuff) but doesn't cloud the other ranges.
I really dig some good highs (and good mids, while I'm at it).
Something with an expansive and warm sound would be fantastic.
I've been interested in making a jump towards tubes and was considering the little dot mk III, on that note got the higher impedances in my sights..
I've had my eye on a variety of the Sennheiser's and Beyerdynamics DT's
