So after loving the sound I get from Sennheiser HD 380, I realized that I am not going to go through the trouble of using full size headphones on the train. Just not worth the extra hassle. I'll stick with my in ear Bose headphones.
Now .... since I now plan to use headphones strictly at home, I have no problem of using an Open set instead of the closed ones AND I can add a small amp to power up those 200, 300 Ohm headphones.
Question is ........ I really like the sound of Closed Sennheiser HD 380. But, now that I can get Open headphones with an amp ... what set do you recommend that will blow my Sennheiser 380 out of the water? For $130 they sound great... but now I can spend $700+
any feedback is much appreciated.
Budget for headphone + amp is around $700.
