Hi people, I was forwarded here from the recommendations sub forum.
As the title is saying I'm in for an upgrade to my audio equipment. I'm looking to buy my second (propper) headphones and AMP + DAC. I'm listening mostly to metal and alternative rock,like paramore, nightwish, flyleaf, etc.
I will be using my computer as the source playing mostly FLAC-files, but I also use spotify sometimes when i dont have / can't find the music that i want in FLAC formate.
The equipment I own and use today is:
Cans: Soundmagick hp 100
AMPand DAC: O2+ODAC Combo
The biggest problems with the equipment I have today is that I find that the can's lack mid-tones and the bass is to sloppy. i would like a tighter bass as i think that sounds better with "my type of music".
I have a total budget of aproximately 3000USD for this.
It doesent matter if the cans are open or closed and the AMP and DAC don't have to be in one piece as this is going to be a stationary rig.
Feel free to give advise and recommendations or just to coment some of the advises.
