I got into headphones about a month ago, i spend long hours studying in collage and enjoy listening to music. my audio background is a mid-fi home system, twin amped PSB Stratus speakers and Velodyne SPL sub connected to mid level separates and music hall turntable. I expected that headphones could match home stereos, i now know that was naive.
I have just been offered a 4 month work term away from home and will be spending most off time relaxing and listening to music in the hotel. I need something that i enjoy. So I bought the Grado sr325is thinking i would be happy, it was not the case. I am listening to them right now and it seems like their is a giant hole in the mid bands and its just not crisp. I have ordered the HIFI-M8 so i can pretty much power anything, what should i be looking at? whats the best way to go, i cant afford STAX electrostats but i can swing what is reasonably necessary to enjoy the sound.
thanks in advance
