I'm going to buy my first pair of headphones and I need some help please
I am going to buy a Sansa to replace my iPod and I have started converting to FLAC so the next step for me is to buy a decent pair of Headphones. The ones that I have shown interest in are the AKG K271s, AKG K550s and Audio-Technica ATH-M50 but there are so many choices available so if anyone has any other recommendations then feel free but I would like them to cost around £130. The music that I listen to around 90% of the time is either metal or rock and virtually all sub genres of both. I have read up on the AKG K271s and heard that they may need an amp to help drive them so if I do get them I will buy a Fiio E6. I just saw the AKG K550s on sale so they caught my interest too but I am a complete newb to all of this so it's pretty confusing. I will also be doing all of my listening at home on these and I'm not sure if open or closed is better but outside noise wont be a problem for me most of the time. Thanks for any help!
