@droalex: what's your budget?
I'm not an audiophile by any definition of the word but i do like high quality sounding music.
I'm currently using a 60gb ipod video with audio technica ath m50 headphones and a cmoy with an AD825 op-amp. I'm kind of getting tired of carrying an extra amplifier and having the extra wires connecting it to the ipod. I'm also thinking of buying a new mp3 player.
So this brings me to my main question, which mp3 player do you guys recommend? I was looking at the cowons mentioned in the last post and i've read good things about the cowon iaudio 7 but i'm still not sold. Moneys not a problem but being under $200 would be a plus.
give me some great headphones under 200$ I'm pushing towards the grado sr80i, but is there any other headphones that are far better
audio technica; ath-a700 ath-es7 or ath-anc7b
and whats wrong with bose?
If you're going to get the Grado's, look at the Alessandro MS-1s instead. They are a modified (with blessings from Grado Labs) pair of SR80's that use the better SR125 drivers and some other tweaks. They run for $109 (the $99 version uses an older design that is inferior to the newer '09 remodel).give me some great headphones under 200$ I'm pushing towards the grado sr80i, but is there any other headphones that are far better
Yes ^^ I just bought some beats by dre and have never really used quality headphones. I like the way they look and the sound I expect to be better than what I'm used to hearing.
Having said that I want to ask you guys does it matter where the music is coming from...For example...I currently only have an iPod shuffle and a Blackberry to play my music from.. Does it make a noticeable difference say if I played it from my Macbook?
