I'd appreciate your help!
My music is all on cds. I have a sony player and stereo reciever that I will plug headphones into. I'd prefer not to get an amp just yet.
To give a good picture of what I listen to: pink Floyd, Elliott smith, xtc, big star, zeppelin, Beatles, Simon and g, Dylan, the band, Elvis Costello, Beatles, yes, radiohead, wilco... I'm interested in jazz and classical too.
Over the ear. Open or closed. I'm conscious of protecting my hearing. Got mild tinnitus. I don't turn up super loud. I like a warm sound. Nothing grating. Something balanced.
Appreciate it mates.
