Hello all I'm new to this forum if it already isn't visible.
Pretty much I'm a new wannabe audiophile. I loved the change in audio quality when I went from cheap 20$ iPhone headphones to my Beats (Bash away, I know it's not good value for the price but I got it as a gift from my girlfriend and I thought they were great, which by the way they are).
Since then I became obessed with buying headphones. I would like to know where to start to gain more knowledge on the subject. During my next so called "work term" (In university atm), I would like to purchase a great pair of headphones.
I've dabbled in FLAC files vs MP3 but with my current headphones I don't think I can tell the difference and the beats just have over powering bass.
My goal in the long run is to have more general knowledge about headphones and what makes a pair good, as well as how to get the most from my audio as I love my music (well anything but country, hardcore rap and heavy metal).
I would also like to pick up a great pair of headphones that I can use at home, price is no issue. Well I can go up to about 1500$. (Couple people recommending the 800 HD??)
And for my travel headphones I recently picked up a pair of Bose AE2w headphones and I love them.
For gaming I have PLYR 2 from SkullCandy which are excellent IMO.
So yeah, thank you for reading this :)
