I recently purchased a pair of Sennheiser HD650's and after much consideration (terrible for iPod listening, need a decent desktop amp) decided that it seems too much for me. I refunded them and I am going to purchase a cheaper, less power-hungry set of cans.
What is the absolute, top-notch, best quality headphones that don't need an amp? I am going to be listening to them through my iPod Touch 5th Gen and don't want it to get much more complicated than that.
I mainly listen to shoegaze, electronic, hip-hop, but I listen to just about every genre of music. I like bass, but mids and highs are just as important. An all-rounder is what I'm looking for. Thanks.
