Hello Head-Fi! After browsing the forums for about a year now, I thought it was time to make an account.
I'm looking for a new set of cans. I bought my first pair, Shure SRH750s, about a year ago. I love them and they sound great with my music (hip hop, electronic, dub step, alternative and just about everything in between). They are extremely uncomfortable though. After about an hour of use I have to take them off. Because of this, I'm deciding to buy some new ones. Here's what I've narrowed my choices down to.
BD DT770, 880, 990
What do you think would be the best choice? I'm looking for phones with nice, prominent bass (which I believe these all have) but mids and highs that aren't washed out. Overall I want the best sounding, most neutral headphone that still has plenty of bass. Comfort is also very important. Let me know if there is anything I missed, but please keep it in the $200-$300 range.
(From everything I've read, it seems that the DT880s are the way to go. What's the best desktop DAC/AMP/both that could drive the 250ohm version for about $100?
