Have been lurking for a few weeks and have taken the plunge to join the forum...
I'm no expert at this genre of Hi Fi I'm afraid!
Though I do have a decent Hi Fi set up, a good pre-amp (Musical Fidelity MVT), solid state amplifier (Musical Fidelity P270-2, 2x 135 wattts Class A), French floorstanding speakers (Triangle Ventis 222), and fancy cables along with an upgraded Technics 1210 deck.
My headphones, that I've had for a a fair few years now are standard a Sennheiser HP25-1 model.
I also picked up off a U.K. Hi Fi Forum a couple of years ago a mint pair of classic Yamaha Orthodynamic HP-1 headphones (nice looking cans), from a guy in the business who had hardly ever used them from when he originally purchased them back in the mid 1980s, hardly ever used them myself up to now as well to be honest, Sennheiser's all the time!
I listen to my music at home through the stereo, and through a Sony Xperia S phone when on the move.
Looking to move up the food change in the near future. Sennheiser models are high on my list, such as the HD 600, HD 650. I'm not sure how these two models would fair going straight in to the Sony phone!
Also, noticed the Customcan HP 25-1 II upgraded cans for £199.00 in plain black. Has anybody got to grips with these, and if so what are your thoughts, how do they compare to the standard 25-1 II model?
My budget would be up to between £200.00 - £250.00 ($325) maximum for headphones, new or 2nd hand, and later on maybe around £100.00 - £150.00 ($225) for a separate portable amp to go with the phone, also new or 2nd hand.
Look forward to future reviews, and some help for a novice in the headphone world...
