Inspired by GBerg's thread asking for the best cans at ~$300. It occurs to me that $300 is where a lot of us will stop. Think HD600, K701, D2000. However, many will point out that these cans really should be amped. Sure, they might be fine without, but it'd be a waste not to amp them. So, I was wondering: What are the best headphones that don't require amping? Off the top of my head, I'm thinking AD700 (again, from GBerg's post) and D1001s. Can we go any higher without an amp? Rack the brain!
