Headphones for Android Tablet and Phone
I'm looking to buy some new headphones to go with my Nexus 7 (2013) and an android phone (currently HTC One X, but, due for an upgrade later this month - not sure what phone yet!?). My preference is either over ear or in ear, I'm not a fan of on ear headphones.
My current headphones (very old in ear sennheisers) died a few weeks back and I've only just started to look about for a replacement, but, I'm a little unsure what would be suitable, what would require additional amplification and whether better sound quality could be achieved using an external DAC. I think my preference would be to do without a DAC or external amp, however, I'm open to ideas.
I have a large catalogue of lossless CD rips, but, generally put 320kbps files onto my portable devices due to storage constraints. I'm hoping more Android devices start coming out with micro sd card slots!
My musical tastes are varied, from Cara Dillon to Metallica to Elgar.
I've a flexible budget, but, as a starting point, I've been looking around the £150 mark
Thanks for any suggestions
