I'm just starting out as a Head-Fier and was wondering what headphones would suit me. Here's the lowdown:
My listening devices:
I will mainly be flipping between my iPod Touch 5th Generation and my computer, I have steady music collections on both.
My preferred style of music:
My favourite genres are post-rock, indie rock (lo-fi mainly), shoegaze, all forms of electronica (dubstep, IDM, house etc.), hip hop, jazz and ambient. I am always discovering new genres and styles, so my music taste is always expanding. Electronic is hands down my most played and loved genre.
My preferred audio quality:
FLAC on computer and ALAC / MP3 on my iPod Touch.
I have around $400 to spend, but I don't want to spend too much.
I don't care about portability, these will be home listening headphones.
I don't really want to bother with an amp, but if it is necessary, I will buy one.
