    Based on other peoples suggestions for these I would say Grados. I don't have a pair yet but I plan on getting sr80is in the future.

    What guys think about Grado SR225i what Amp/Dac great for this headphones ? 
  4. kramer5150
    SR225 / 325 is a safe pick here.
    K701/2, Q701... but only if you are willing to amp/source them properly.  They will reward you with soundstage image, comfort and deeper bass extension that Grados in this price range can't touch.

    You'll need to specify budget...

    Are you open to DIY or used gear? 
    If you not than I would suggest spending $200 on Schiit magni and modi.  Than spend the next $200 on a pair of Q701s.  
    If you are willing to DIY than I would suggest still getting the Schiit magni as an amp ($100),  DIY Gamma 1 as your DAC (~$100)  and getting a pair of Fostex T50RP and modding them ($100 for the headphones, ~$50 for modding materials).  If you are willing to get used gear than I think you might be able to even get a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 600ohm or 250ohm for more base heavy phones and DT880 600ohm or 250ohm for more neutral headphones which are another amazing option for headphones.   The last thing that I want to say is that the DT880, DT770 and Q701s are all open headphones, while the T50RP is closed, if that makes any difference to you.  I hope this all makes sense.  Of course this is just my 2 cents.  Hope it all helps.
