Hi guys, first time poster here. I would first like to thank Tyll for all the great videos and reviews.
Now onto my questions. Would the AKG k550 be a good headphone for home (mainly desktop computer, will look into getting a sound card) as well as longer journeys where I will listen to music for extended periods of time and just lying on the bed enjoying the music?
The other question would be do these AKG headphones need an amp or can I plug them straight into my ipod (I realize ipods have a poor DAC, but I can't really afford to get a new music player as well), if they do would the Fiio E11 be a good choice? I've read pretty good reviews and the price seems reasonable.
Or maybe I've got it all wrong and I don't need a headphone that costs £180+£45 for an amp and should settle for some ATH-M50s (which here cost £135). But would I be missing out on great sounding music?
Anyway I just wanted to hear what you experts had to say on the matter.
Thanks in advance
