I listen to mainly modern rock, punk rock pop rock, etc. I would be listening to them at home, in a quiet environment. I am interesting in trying Stax, but I've heard a lot of great reviews about the Alpha Dog. If I am to buy stax, I have a couple of questions though, is there any chance a Stat headphone will shock me, is there any need for a normal amplifier in addition to the SRS-2170, and is it possible to play them from an iPad or laptop with no additional devices.
So which is the best for rock, Stax or Alpha Dog?
