I am bulding a system for classical music, especially German/Austrian symphonic music.
Assuming someone would buy me the headphone, so the price of the headphone is irrelevant in this issue. I just want to know, if my budget for amp and CD/SACD player is 2500 dollars (default split - 1500 dollars for CD player, and 1000 dollars for headphone amp), which one of the following headphones would give me the best outcome - HD600,T90,HD800,T1?
I know that 2500 dollars budget would not match the real performance of HD800 or T1. However, since the price of the headphone is not a concern, if HD800(or T1) perform better than HD600(or T90) in my system, even if only a little bit better, I would choose HD800 (or T1) over HD600 (or T90).
The reason why I ask in that way is that I always hear that HD800 and T1 are very intolerant in middle-end systems. In other words, HD800 and T1 would perform worse tha HD600 and T90 in middle-end system. Is that true? Or exaggerated?
