So here's my question: what's the best home audio set-up I can get for $700 budget? I am looking for a pair of headphone & a amp.
Types of headphone I'm looking for:
-Wide soundstage & great details
-Just right "enough" amount of bass with smooth mids & crisp highs.
-sound as clear as the AKG K550
-Full size circumference that covers my ear entirely
-suitable for all genres of music
-Using it mostly for music.
Currently, I am looking at AKG K550, Sennheiser HD598/HD650/HD600. Open for recommendation.
As for amp:
-Not necessary to have built-in battery
-pair well with the headphone
-Must be external as my PC has no extension slots
-Portable or not does not matter
Not much experience with amp. Had only tried Beyerdynamic A1 & iBasso D7. iBasso DX100 if you consider them as an amp/dac hybrid
I am trying to avoid used headphones as this will be my last purchase for years.
