More expensive headphones or headphones + headphone amp?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi All...first post and after a bit of advice.

 

I've just bought a used system...the CD player is an Audiolab 8200 and the amp in a Marantz PM6004. I have about £500 left. Am I better off spending it on a pair of headphones or splitting it between headphones and a headphone amp?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Dan

I would say to buy headphones for now, plug them into the Marantz PM6004, see if you like the sound.

You can always add a headphone amplifier at a later date.

 

What headphones do you currently own?

Does it matter if headphones are open or closed?

You can spend well under 700 GBPs (like 350 GBP) and still get some great sounding headphones.

None at the moment...was looking at Sennheiser HD650 or 800, LCD-2 or possibly some Grado's (though I had a pair of RS1i's and found them quite tiring to listen to)...

Maybe get some cheaper headphones for now and take some time to think out the big purchase.
