A little over a year ago, I sold off my setup of a Little Dot Mk3 and Grado HF-2. Before that, I've had numerous headphones and even had the pleasure of owning an older pair of Stax. In addition, I've been to a few meets in my area and have heard many grand setups. I realize now that I dearly miss my headphone setup. I miss hearing a song and having chills roll down my spine.
I currently have a pair of M50's (which I intend on selling because they are slightly bass heavy and they lack articulation across the spectrum) and will be receiving an O2 amp shortly. I retained my original DAC, a Gamma1. So I am in the market of headphone to pair with my setup. Currently, I would like to set my budget to $200 because I know that it gets you a lot of headphone, as long as you have an adequate source and amp (which I believe the O2 is for my purposes, for the moment at least). I am in between the DT800 (600ohm) and the new K612 but I am open to suggestions. I don't really have a preference on the sound but I want to enjoy it and I want to be impressed again.
