I wish I had found this forum sooner.

Newbie here!  Due to my ignorance and living in Idaho the only headphones that I have heard of are the low end headphones.  A co-worker let me listen to his Bose qc15.  I thought they sounded great and picked up a pair off of craigslist at a fair price.  To me they sounded good  even though i have the hearing of a 70 year old.  I have been working on military and comercial aircraft for over 25 years.  Needless to say my hearing is shot.  The bose didn't have the bass I wanted.  So again due to my ignorance on headphones I picked up a set of beats pro.{craigslist}  The bass was better but the sound quality compared to the bose was quite poor.  I am ready to dump the beats  pros and upgrade to a better pair of headphones.  I will keep the bose for air travel.  We have a couple Hi Fi shops that I will go and demo.  This leads to my question .  I picked up a Fiio EO7K.  Will this amp work with most headphones or will I damage the lower end headphones?  I just don't want to smoke my bose.  My budget will be around $500 for my next set of headphones.  I listen to mostley rock and will use them for movies on my laptop.  Thanks   Berm!

Hiya, welcome to Head fi. I am sorry about your wallet.

 

Since your budget allows to go for HE 400 or mad dogs. You could consider them. E 07 K would not ruin your Bose. But this amp would not drive 250 Ohm headphone. You may need magni amp for driving 250 Ohm headphone.
