Hi. I have around $250 to spend on a pair of headphones to replace my HD 428.
The contestants are ATH-AD900 and Sennheiser 598 so far.
I'm looking mostly for full-size open (or at least semi-open) headphones. I won't be carrying these around.
I'm leaning towards ATH-AD900 since a friend of a friend is trying to sell his after having it for a couple of months, but if there's something significantly better, please let me know.
Also, some questions:
1. At this price range, should I consider getting a headphone amp? How do I know if the performance of these headphones is being compromised by other components of my audio system?
2. Right now, I'm listening to flac from my computer audio through a Creative USB sound card. Should i try to improve the sound source before I spend on a pair of headphones?
