Hello beautiful people of Head-Fi! I lurk often whenever I decide I need a review of headphones or I browse the general discussion and decided to make an account to pose this question.
I have a budget of $500, what would be a good setup? I have already spent roughly $200 on gear. I currently own:
Ultrasone HFI 580's
Fiio E6 Amp
It seems to me I got bit by the bug, as I desire better and better headphones now! A good amp is always good to have too. For playback I use either my iPhone 4 or MSI GT 670m gaming laptop. I'm a rather huge bass head, but mids and treble is important to me as well. I normally listen to dubstep, drumstep, and many sub-genres of Electronica in general.
I'm looking for a nice bassy set of cans, preferably closed ear, preferably comfortable. Looks don't bother me much.
If needed, I can afford to dump over $1,000 on stuff for my craving to become an audiophile. I feel like I should get a high end amp, so I won't have to upgrade again later.
Anyways, does anyone have suggestions for a nice set of under $1000 cans, preferably with an outstanding bass. Also, any suggestions on what headphone amps I should get?
Also, is it a good idea to buy headphones used, or is new often the best route to take?
Thanks guys! :3
