What headphones do you use? - Page 2

my IEMs are Shure se530s, and I don't have any OTE headphones (yet). I did just buy a pair of M-Audio AV40s as desktop monitors/speakers, but having difficulties figuring out how I can try to get them to work with a powered sub and my macbook pro. Might have to scrap the powered sub idea unfortunately, but that's a discussion for a different place.

Home Use: Grado 225s modded by ALO Audio, Benchmark DAC1 with hirez chipset and Eichmann RCAs

Recordings: Grado 125s and Senn 600s, Sound Devices 722 (I do professional classical recordings in hirez)

Portable: iMetal 590s by Maximo plus 30gb video iPod

I'm looking at Grado RS2s in the future and maybe a Stax system or an Audeze LCD2.

Grado SR125i and Audio Technica ESW9a when I can't have sound leakage.

Sennheiser HD414s. They have to be at least 33 years old but they are still good.

As I said in a previous post, Im getting some Senheiser HD555. I will mostly be playing music from my macbook pro-- should I get an external amp? If so, whats a decent one that won't cost tons?

you can pick up a external dac/amp combination. i love my nuforce udac2. it doesn't need external power either.

Grado SR 60 and 125s at home. Great sound but 125s (older model) aren't that comfortable for extended listening.
Etymotic ER 4P - great for subway and gym.
Audio Technica M50 - for studio and travel where I can't have a lot of leakage

I am planning on buying a pair of Grados, since I don't own any full-size cans and a newer pair of Shures. That is, unless I can justify buying a pair of Westones. The Westone 1s are fairly affordable, but I'm not sure if they're that good.

Do you think there will be a noticeable difference with a dec/amp with my HD555 from my macbook pro?
Looking at either the uDac2 or the Fiio e7

If you do decide to get an amp, I'd take the e7 over the uDac2

Any particular reason? That is also the route I'm thinking though, because I could get the e9 in addition for more power, if I needed it.

I have Grado SR80s for open and AKG K81DJ's for my closed.

My friend just got a pair of Dre Beats Turbines for $90 (apparently 50% off), and honestly they sound like shit. I thought they would sound decent just not worth the price, however upon hearing them with my own ears they barely sound better than the white Apple earbuds. My $30 Koss Plugs and JVC Marshmallows sound much better.

Can't believe so many people get fooled into buying them.
