I'd like to improve my computer audio listening experience. I listen to music via my computer using IEMs and an Altec Lansing 2.1 system. I'd like to upgrade to full size headphones and also upgrade the external speakers. After researching for the last few days I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. Frankly, just to be done with it I was almost ready to go to Best Best buy last night to buy the following:
Budget is $750.
Here are my requirements
- Desktop amp to drive closed full size headphones, two passive speakers and a active sub.
- Closed headphones that are comfortable for hours at a time. Wish I could tell you what headphonesI have tried, but there aren't any place to audition a wide variety of headphones. I've read that the Beyers are comfortable. I've tried the Bose AE2 and they are comfortable, but from I've read I don't think they would be much of an upgrade over the klipsch x10 I currently use.
Basically, I am asking if you had a $750 budget, how would you, how would you spend it on the above items (excluding the speakers and sub)?
Thanks for you help.
