Let’s set the record straight. A good pair of headphones cannot simply be picked up and bought without auditioning the results. The same rules used in choosing the proper pair of denim or winter jacket – pull them off the shelf and try them out. Headphones are even more critical to music “snobs” as details are brought out or lost depending on which model you choose. If you are happy with how Empire of the Sun sounds next to Flying Lotus or Integrity on your cans, then rock on.
But if you want to take it to the next level, then consider the Denon AH-D5000’s – arguably some of the best sounding headphones on the market today. Though you may need to properly amp them for best results, at this price point finding an amplifier to complement them should be no issue. Yours now for 700$ US from HeadRoom.
