Ive been lurking here for a while now and have enjoyed the numerous and thoroughly informative threads.
About me: American living in SE Asia,former drummer and DJ,with nominal hearing loss in left ear,but nothing to cry about.
Musical tastes:Primarily classic rock,old school metal +reggae,folk,dark trance,60-70s pop
Now onto my questions
Ive been testing some portable amp/DAC units to go with my Samsung Galaxy S3 and found my favorite to be the Sony PHA-1.It was an easy plug and play into my Droid,bypassing the internal DAC,gave good volume,no distortion.Plus it also worked well with my Ipod touch too.
I tested many different headphones with it,Hifiman 500,Ultrasone 900,BeyerDynamics 880(250...didnt have the 650 version)Seinheiser 600 and 650 and found the 600s to be my favorite.The music sounded as I expected it to,natural I guess is a good way to put it.However the sound didnt "blow me away" Id like a little more treble response to go with tighter bass without losing the mids.
Does such a fullear headphone exist?For 700 usd or under?And if so what do yall suggest?
Im going to be using these primarily for mobile use,walking around town and I really could careless how they look on me,im more concerned with the audio im hearing....
Also If I do go with the 600s Ive read here that swapping out the cable for the 650 cable is a worthwhile investment...thoughts?
Thanks in advance
