    DAC/Amp vs new headphones?

    IE800 for $250

    Ie 800 comparison

    IEM recommendations <£1000

    I've been lurking and reading various threads, and it seems that at the higher end there is no consensus on a 'best' IEM. Much of it seems to come down to personal preference and the sound signature that appeals to each individual. Still, I'm going to ask for some thoughts, and try and provide...
