i love my ipod, not because it's hip or cool, but because it's stylish, has an easy-to-manage interface, stores all my music with room to spare, and sounds fantastic with decent headphones.

Only problem you'll find with sennheisers is not having enough power running through them to really push them to their limits..the higher up you go on their price range and frequency capabilities, the better your overall sound will be.

yes, with decent headphones they do sound good, as do several other mp3 players (creative and cowin products come to mind) and others do have hdd storage and easy-to-manage interface. I personally like Creative's interface better then apples. and you don't have to have the same exact mp3 player as everyone else

first of all soloz i dont' really understand what an amp is and what will it do for a pair of HD555's. If i wanted to but an amp what would be good at a cheap price? And plus i had an ipod before it broke 3 time of coarse apple fixed it but it was a pain to send it back. But before the ipod i had a creative zen micro it was amazing. The interface is way better than the ipod's. Now i just said "screw you ipod" and i just got a creative zen vision:m best purchase ever. I use mediamonkey It's kinda a pro media player because it offers a boat load of customization options. For example you can put FLAC and OGG files on any player. What it does is it auto converts the track as it's transfering. If you want the gold version which is needed for this function PM me.


Yes SQUISH rename this thread to "everything music and mp3" or something like that. This thread does kick ass.

A headphone amp is a device that drives the headphones better so that the volume is higher and sounds are clearer. For some audiophile headphones this is a necessity because plugging them straight into, say an mp3 player, will not provide enough power to play music at normal volumes. Amps can improve the clarity of music but some may color them a certain way (i.e. more bassy, etc.).

cMoy amps are the cheapest you can find but for slightly more you can get the better PA2V2 or Little Dot Micro+ (maybe the Go-Vibe V5 if you stretch your budget). These cheap amps will cost you around $30 to $60 plus shipping.

that's a brand new amp so I haven't heard anything about it yet.

basically there are different amps for different purposes. While not quite as simplistic, if you have a powered sub it has a different amp then say the amp required to drive full range speakers. And then there are varying degrees of quality when it comes to amps. Think of car audio for example... often in the paper there will be adds for a 1000w amp that costs $50, but if you go to a car audio shop and look at a 'name brand' amp you can't even buy one for $50, and their lowest model will be like 250w. so does that mean that the more expensive amp is only 1/4 as powerful? actually it often means exactly the opposite. The amp that is driving the subs in my car cost $750 back in the day (it's not made anymore.... Kicker ZR360) and it was only rated at 360w (it's a conservative rating)

I just brought that up because more people are familiar with car audio then audiophile headphones.

the big difference in price when it comes to amps is the complexity of the amp circuit. Often better amps are more complex and have higher quality components, thus they cost more to make and then cost the consumer more. But, just because an amp is cheap does not mean it is bad. There are several good sub $100 amps on the market including the Pa2v2 and LDM+. There are also several DIY amps that can be made for under $100 including the CMOY, PIMETA, PPAS and PINT. (the latter 2 being more difficult) a CMOY can be made for as little as $25 and is often housed in a mint tin, thus it's sometimes referred to as a tin or a mint tin amp. A PIMTEA is not much harder to build and sounds much better and can be made for $100... my upgraded (maxxed out) PIMETA cost about $200+ (has a dedicated psu)


now, if you want an amp for your HD555's I would suggest the LDM+ it has great syngery with my HD595's and for the money it can't be beat. (although I have some PINT and PPAS boards that I want to build... I have a feeling one of them might replace my LDM+ for my portable rig)
