Ok, hanks for the input. Ya this is gonna be my first real step into "audiophile" sound. I've learned more about headphones dacs and amps than I have my whole life! You seem to know what your talking about, what headphone and amp combo would you suggest I get?
Info about me:
Music : Anamanaguchi, jack johnson, walk off the earth, ratatat, wookiefoot, the glitch mob, gorilaz
I do a lot of gaming, I am a student, so I would be taking these with me to school, noise isolation isn't a big deal, I just want the best sounding equipment because I don't want my time at school to force me to have headphones that will limit me in my free time. Don't know If you've seen me around here, but I've been trying to find the right cans for the past 3 days!
Budget: trying to keep the whole setup under $300
I love over ear headphones to death, but I would choose sound performance vs design 9/10 times (as long as they don't look like crap)
Sorry if this was wordy, I'm just a bit overwhelmed by this site
-Thanks for the input sincerely, Schwizzle ;3
