Good day Sirs...
I do not claim to be an audiophile but do enjoy listing to very good sound. I have never had what would be considered a good set of headphones or IEMs (IEMs I prefer for isolation).
My hobbies up till now have not included investing in sound equipment so I have none to speak of.
My musical interest would be classical rock... my favorite bands being Rush, Boston, Zeppelin, Moody Blues etc. I would only be listening with my iPod.
I really want something that is going to "knock my socks off"... something that is clear and accurate.
I know this may not be possible with the poor quality that can come with an iPod but I would like something that is so much better than my wife's Bose IEMs that I just smile at her when she says she can not tell why I spent the extra money. Yes I know Bose are crap.
After a few days of research I have noted that the Astrotec AX-60 might be a good fit for what I am looking for. I have read many post on recommendations and several asking basically the same recommendations that I am asking for, in this forum.
So I guess what I need to know is if my iPod will drive the AX-60 and any final thoughts and recommendations might be.
You do not need to review any IEMs for me I can find reviews on the forums.
Also the price of the AX-60 is my limit and I don't think going up from there would bring greater return for the money to my ear.
