As requested, I moved the headphone chat into this thread. I'm a bit of a headphone nerd, so I'm happy to see some discussion on this topic!!
Went to CANJAM
in LA last year, it's a fun show if you are super into this stuff!
When I got out of vinyl (for the most part lol) about 3-4 years ago I spent some money on a high quality digital setup now.
My home setup: Oppo PM1 connected to Fostex HP-A4 BL (Balanced cable)
My portable setup: Oppo PM3 when wanting a wired pair (These are pretty neutral, so should be really good to mix audio with!!!) and I'm now on the Bang & Olufsen H7 for Bluetooth set. It took me a long time to find the 'perfect' bluetooth headphones, I can't deal with noise cancelling so the H7s are really nice (If you can find them around $200 like I did).
My headphone story went like: Sennheiser HD202 - Sennheiser HD 280 - Sennheiser HD 555 - Audio Technica M50s - Sennheiser HD 598 - Oppo PM1/PM3
For anyone who just connects their headphones to jack on laptop or computer, I'm telling you even spending $50-100 on a dac/amp is worth the money!!! The Fiio E10K
is what opened my ears to this -- A great place to start
For budget stuff, the Sennheiser 598s are not only INSANELY comfortable (I would often fall asleep with them on lol) but they also sound great for the price. Highly recommend those with the Fiio E10K
Unboxing the Oppo PM-1s is a fun experience, some dude took a video of this lol
