I mostly listen to classic rock (Led zep, etc). I also listen to a lot of classical music. Some pop music and soundtracks.

IDK. How do i find out the output impedance?
What are the signs that the output impedance is too high? What should I listen for?
AKG 701 is both expensive and big. From what I looked up, the K240 studio seems fine for me. Or should I be looking at the Grado SR60i?
I can't bear a sibilant treble, so thats one thing too.
IDK. what non bassy, open back, ~100$ set of cans should I buy?
Also, I read somewhere the replacing the cable on the hd518 will help. Is it worth sticking with the hd518, or should I move on?
Finally, what price do you think I should sell it at? what would be fair?
