(Currently using onboard sound + ATH M30s)
Well, I had posted a thread two or three days ago asking what I should buy for ~$150, however, with research and lack of willpower, my budget is stretched a tiny bit.
I'm thinking my budget will now be $280-300'ish.
My taste in music -
Roughly 50% of my library is female vocals (Indie'ish, folk).
Gabrielle Aplin as a good example -
As well as Orla Gartland -
Classical music, comprising about 30%
Brahms being a recent favorite, though I listen to most of the classics.
Classic rock with the other 20%
Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Creedence, CSN&Y, ect
Female Vocals and Classical are definitely the most important, though.
^ I will also be watching movies and TV shows on them as well.
It will be used in my home nearly 100% of the time, so no worries with disturbing people around me, thus I would prefer open cans.
My desktop is still using it's onboard sound, so I will probably need an amp.
Current idea running through my head, though I have no clue how good of an idea it is -
1. Buy a Schiit Vali amp tonight/tomorrow
2. Wait until Friday to hopefully find a decent deal (Stalking the Deals Thread). Potentially Sennheiser 598s if they're a decent price?
Anyhow, enough of my rambling.. any thoughts/recommendations/ideas would be greatly appreciated.
