I have a Sansa Clip+ Rockboxed and I do have a FIIO E11 (if I need to use it for IEMs, but more likely not).
I currently use the Hifiman HE-500 with Schiit Lyr for my home audio. I love the syrupy and tangible sound those cans produce, and it was something I got to experience some of with the JVC FX101. But I have already gone through 3 of them already, they don't last which is why I'm looking to "upgrade"
These are $99 each which is right in line with my budget.
I've heard really good things about the RE-400 and supposedly they are better than the RE0s.
I listen to a lot of hip-hop, pop, rap, rock, jazz, etc. The only thing I don't listen to at all is metal, but hip hop is a big chunk of my listening.
I might be somewhat of a basshead but I like with the HE-500s how they achieve more of an accurate bass rather than overexagerrating it.
Any other suggestions than these two would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for reading.
