I know this kinda question gets posted on here every day, but i couldnt really come to a solid conclusion threading through some of those.
Basically i'd like to buy my first set of good headphones(up til now ive had to make do with an ok-ish MOS pair), with a budget up to 150 euros.
i plan to run these off my laptop and ipod touch (4g).
the phones dont necessarily have to be portable, and on-ear is fine although id slightly prefer over-ears for comfort. open and closed headphones are both fine i think.
the music ill be listening to is mostly rock/alternative/electronic, eg. Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Burial
i dont have money for an amp, although i might buy one later.
heres a shortlist i made with their amazon prices:
grado sr-80i (111 eur)
ultrasone hfi-580 (128 eur)
sennheiser hd-558 (127 eur)
ath-m50 (140 eur)
shure srh 440 (115 eur)
beyer dt-770 pro 80 ohm (155 eur)
im slightly inclined towards the hd558, but im worried (as for the dt770) that those wont be driven properly without an amp.
so if anyone could help me out choosing one of these, that would be much appreciated.
