I'm new here, looking to buy a pair of good headphones, considering primarily the ones listed above. There's lots of discussion out there comparing these and discussing which ones need a headphone amp more than others and how they compare with or without amping. I'm planning on plugging in to the headphone jack of my NAD C 356BEE integrated amp. There's not much out there about driving headphones from an integrated vs. a headphone amp, and what I have found is conflicting. Does anyone have experience with these headphones from this amp or similar integrated amp (or even how this amp compares to headphone amp with other headphones)? I'm looking for actual experience more than speculation, but informed opinion is ok.
I listen mostly to a mix of classical, jazz, and rock. I want something pretty neutral, prefer slightly warm over bright or harsh, but I want to hear the details. Not looking for excess bass, but I don't want it to be weak either. I understand the AKGs require a long burn-in before they stop sounding harsh and lacking bass, that's ok with me.
Really appreciate if anyone has any info or guidance on this.
