I've been listening to my Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones along with my iBasso D10 with a HiFlight Top Kit. I very much enjoy the sound and listening experience. I go for hours at a time.
Now....where do I go for more? For better? For the need to subconsciously play an air guitar or beat an invisible drum along with the tune my new cans are playin.
I mainly listen to rock and blues type music. I go from things like Kings of Leon to Killswitch Engage to Norah Jones. Blue October to Foo Fighters to the Alabama Shakes. Pink Floyd to Amos Lee. Arcade Fire to Godsmack. Sometimes a bit of country or a shot of pop settles the moment.
I like to get lost in the music and be in there with it. I love sweet mids and authoritative bass without being boomy. I'll spin (digitally most of the time) an entire album at a time. I really like the ATH-M50 and am curious what will be an improvement on it. I don't like to play it loud, I like to play it right.
Where do I go for an improvement in the headphone department? How about if cost was no object? Will I need another amp or will my iBasso fill the bill?
Thanks for any an all suggestions. Like many, I find it frustrating that you can not go to a local brick and mortar to give a listen to most of the headphones and I appreciate the forums feedback!
