Presently, I'm looking for a replacement to my Shure 440s. I listen to a lot of hard rock and progressive/symphonic metal, and like a bassy punch. I'm . . . not sure I'd be considered a basshead though.
I'm seriously considering the Sennheiser HD650s, but I'm not sure they're actually what I'm looking for. I've tried some Grados, and while I like the sound signature, my pair got a case of the Grattles that I couldn't shake off. They're also pretty uncomfortable.
I've been looking at other options, like some Beyerdynamic variants. My budget would be $500 or so on the high end, right about where the HD650s stand.
No idea where to start on the amp. I've never had one, and I'd like to invest in one. I'd probably max at about $100 for an amp.
