I am new to this forum, but a semi-regular poster on avsforum.com. I have a solid home theater setup that I would like to supplement with a pair of headphones.
What I am hoping for is a "jack-of-all trades" pair. I recognize I am going to make sacrifices by only buying one pair of cans for multiple purposes, but I think I will start there, and supplement in future years as desired.
I currently have a nice home theater/music setup, powered by a Denon 2112 AVR. I will be using this as my amp for home use, source will be CDs or uncompressed .wav files.
Now the tricky part, is I want these headphones to also work for traveling and mobile devices without the addition of an amp. This limits me to closed models, and models that do not require amplification.
Any recommendations? Any insight into how big of a sacrifice I am making by the above restriction in terms of sound quality?
My primary music listening is everything in the rock spectrum, from acoustic to hard rock, 60s to today.
