Re: Headphones, any suggestions?

the issue there isn't with the headphones, it's the player that it's connected to. some headphones require more "juice" to drive the sound, and unfortunately ipods/portable players don't deliver that amount. you can either just get a headphone amp and keep the headphones you have, or get headphones that can easily be "driven" by the portable player.

i was fortunate enough to have a coworker years ago who was a musician/audiophile (this was around the 1st or 2nd gen ipod era), i was thinking of getting newer headphones when he suggested i try a headphone amp and let me borrow his for the day. the difference is night and day.
