I work in the Middle East where the availability of most "high-end" AV equipment is well limited shall we say. Current equipment is as below in the Work section.
For a while I've been thinking of getting a headphone based bedroom system using an Apple Airport Express to stream (from my PC in the study) Lossless, Spotify and Napster.
As I said I usually have to rely on mail order so can't get much if anything in the way of a demo. As I travel a lot I was interested to read the 5* review of the Bose Quiet Comfort 15's which I can get here. I had been thinking of something like AKG K701 DAC/Head amp all of which I'd have to buy mail order.
So heres's the question has anyone experience of how the Bose would compare to the K701's ? Obviously the Bose would be useful as I travel a lot but how much would I miss out on in "Hi-Fi terms" compared to the K701's ?
Initially I'd just plug the Bose directly into the AE whilst I make my mind up about the DAC/Head-amp
