a few days ago my Sennheiser HD595 died, and i am now looking for a new pair of headphones.
i think i am going to get up a bit in price range, i am thinking around 300-400$, any really good phones in that price range?
Some of the things i really loved about my hd595 was that they were really comfortable, i used them both at home and at work, and i intend to use the new ones in the same way.
some of the things i would like in a new pair of phones:
- Velour pads, maybe leather, but no fake leather.
- nice sound (obviously!)
- I don't mind if they are open-back because i am mostly alone at work.
- not too heavy
- relatively rugged, i am going to use them at work, so they get in my bag everyday.
i don't know with head-amp? I had one at home with the computer but i gave it to my brother when i moved away, but i am thinking of buying something new for the computer, and a battery powered amp for work. Any suggestions?
My final budget would be around $600-700 for amps and headphones?
