Alright, first off I'm a total newbie. Sadly the only headphones that I even own are some cheap Sony MDR-CD60's. I'm getting bored with building PCs so I want to take up a new hobby. I really enjoy music so I figured that this would be a good one. To start off with, I want to get a nice set of headphones. I'm not really sure what to look for. I'm not really obsessed with bass so the Grado line seemed like a nice place to start. I've heard good things about the SR-125's, but some say that they don't sound good unless you use them with an amp. I was reading around the forum and heard Alessandro-Grado mentioned. The people that mentioned them said that they were just rebadged Grado's that were cheaper. I can't seem to find any place online that sells them though. I also want to know what the good headphone review sites are, and the good online stores that sell headphones. I don't really want to spend anymore than $300 for a total setup (including amp if needed). Can anyone aquaint me with the world of high end headphones?
