Hello! Long time lurker, first time poster
I have recently received a pair of Senn 280 Pros for Christmas and I love them so, but I plan on getting some great $100 plus headphones since all my headphone life I've had sub $100 gear. I will also would like to purchase an amp to go along with it. I am in need of suggestions though since I am rather new to this audiophile deal.
Music-I listen to a lot of Extreme Metal so heavy distorted guitars and a lot of double bass drums, but also listen to plenty of classical music of all types from orchestral to instrumental, so something that can handle both very will be great
Preference-I have read that Grados headphones go well with rock/metal but I prefer over the ear headphones, I am open to the idea, but if there is another headphone that fits the bill
Price Range- Over $100 with a maximum price of 200 but might consider going to 250. Maximum Amp price is 100 and will likely purchase it at a later date.
Plan- This purchase will be used mainly to listen to music on my laptop, I also use it for gaming and audio chat over skype with friends, but this isn't to much of a factor. My sennies, will be used with my usv audio interface to record myself over on a sepraate computer as well as headphones for a future purchase of an electronic keyboard.
Thanks and I hope to be a contributing member on these here forums :)
