Alright, I just found, after months and months of looking all over the place and testing out all sorts of headphones, I've finally settled on an affordable and amazing sounding pair of cans. Grados may not look the nicest in some people's eyes, but damn, I think they're gorgeous, and **** they sound great. Even the SR60i's were competing with $200 and $300 cans I tested out. Anyway, I'm saving up the money to get the SR80i's, and I'll be buying them this weekend hopefully. Unfortunately, this leaves me with the problem I've dreaded for ages. I don't have a DAC/amp for my laptop. Sure, when I'm at home I can play things through the CD player and stuff, but I like to be in my room listening to stuff off my laptop, and I don't want to waste potential with these Grados. I've been looking at the Audioengine D1 for a while, since it would be nice to have a laptop powered DAC/amp for portability, but I'm still not sure about the amp business, since I know of nowhere to test them out. I'm looking for something $200 or less, because quite frankly, I'm poor. I'd just like to know about any other options in my price range that I could get my hands on.
Thanks to all who help!
