Thanks for the replies. I plug my headset straight into my cd player, nothing in between. I really do not have a budget, as I am open to getting a new listening environment. But I cannot justify headsets more than $550 to my wife ;0)
I like many genres, but what I most listen to is piano music by various artists in various genre (Helen Jane Long, David Lanz), new-age type music such as Kitaro, as well as jazz.blues such as Norah Jones, and Flamingo-guitar stuff like Jesse Cook.
I have never really felt connected to the sound of my Sennheiser HD555, as I like a full bass as well as crisp trebles (violin)
Another option would be to buy an Asus Xonar Essence STX, and start listening to cds through the computer. Would that improve the sound in the HD555?
I really have no way of testing anything out, so that is why I am here to get help!
Thanks for your help!
