Thanks guys for your recommendations for HD518, i today bought Sennheiser HD518 (120$) & honestly saying its not that much awesome as i expected it to be, especially when its rated at a rank of 25 on best cans on head-fi. Its tone is similar to my 20$ philips SHP8500.
Although it drives well for a 50ohm headphone with my Google nexus prime. It sounds **** with my desktop integrated audio card. (MSI H55M-P33) Lows are scooped, mids are ok & highs are very very harsh, is it possible because its not burnt in properly?. Even the sound stage is average.
This is what MSI says about my on board.
I am planning to buy Grado s60 or s80 after this.
Please suggest a good DAC + AMP for 120$ ?
