    Couple months ago I sold my Nuforce Icon HDP and Sennheiser HD650, sort of wanted to start fresh and with a set of headphones and amp/dac to match my main music genre. I mostly listen to dance/electronica music and that music really didn't seem to go well with those HD650's. I'm assuming the...
