Sorry for starting a new thread for all of you that don't exactly like newbies (such as myself) starting new threads that to you seem all the same. But here goes
As mentioned, I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this. The best I've ever had is a Sony MDR-ZX600 and i messed up the wires those in less than a month by mistake. Now I'm tired of breaking earphones and headphones that just waste my money and barely last a year. My budget is around $300 ($350 max) and I'm planning on buying over the summer. The thing is, if I was dedicated to one genre I'd just read the other reviews and pick a pair, but I'm not xP I like music a various genres (reason is too long and bothersome to put into words and type). Just fyi if it helps, I listen to Korean and English music
RnB (mostly Korean like K.Will but definitely some english ones)
Rock (metal, grunge, post-grunge, pop, alternative, punk, indie)
Dubstep (not too much)
Classic (mostly Piano or guitar)
So far I'm thinking of:
AKG: K551, K267
Audio-Technica: ATH-WS99, ATH-M50, ATH-ANC9, ATH-ES700
Sennheiser: RS170, RS 180, HD 438, Momentum (Black)
Denon: AH-D340, AH-D2000 (if i can find any), AH-D320, AH-D1100
V-MODA: Crossfade M-100, Crossfade LP2
Its not limited to that list. Those are the ones I know of. Feel free to reccomend any others.
I use my Samsung Galaxy S2 as my device, and I agree with many others that it could've been A LOT better.. but Im stuck with it until next year or so. I also have an iPad (4th gen, 64gb) but I mostly use my phone since the iPad isnt the most portable. So Im thinking of purchasing a portable DAC&Amp combo if I can manage within my budget. Should I start using my iPad more? If I do, should I try the Icon iDo from Nu Force?
Any advice would be much appreciated as I need as much of it as possible
Thanks in advance!!
