Long time lurker first time poster looking for a new setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey all, been reading this site for years, hands down the best information I've found on the subject.  I just got a new job with a new office and I'd like to celebrate with a new setup.  

 

So I'd like to open up to general suggestions on what you think is the best out there? (w/in a reasonable price).  Here are a couple details:

 

- looking for over the ear only, ears are sensitive and get irritated w/ most all in-ear headphones

- looking for mainly a headphone+amp setup which ill be streaming/playing music from my laptop with

- via USB DAC is preferred, using a usb hub so less to plug into my actual laptop when i bring it back from meetings

 

budget for headphones are $200-500, for amp about the same.  although if something is a little bit out of budget but worth it I'm open

 

 

thanks for any suggestions!

Need a bit more detail.  What kind of music do you listen to and at what volume levels?  Do you want open or closed back headphones?

I moved this thread to the appropiate place after I saw it was in the wrong area:

I have no preference of closed open.. as far as music I listen to everything (more detail on the 2nd post).  As far as levels go I like it moderately loud actually.
