I've been a viewer in the forum for quite awhile and I recently decided to spend my christmas money on headphones and any other equipment. Now, I have a budget of about 500 dollars, maybe a bit more, but I want the best quality I can get. I admit, I am a bit knowledgeable when it comes to headphones, though I know brands and what not, so I thought I'd come to you guys for help. So any suggestions?
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
Schiit Magni/Modi DAC & Amp and Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro 250-Ohm headphones.
Total should not be higher then $450.
You might save $100 if you buy used.
The Schiit Magni and Modi are a great choice. there may be better options than the DT 880 though, since you do have 300 (after buying the Schiit stack) to use on headphones and the DT 880 250ohm is only 200.
telling use what type of music you like will help use make suggestions on headphones that will suit you.
