Hi folks. Due to recent unfortunate events I am going to have to start using headphones again very shortly. I have a pair of the original Beyer Dynamics DT440's (must be 20 years old now) which seem to work ok although they need some new foam surronds.
My question is how do they stack up to modern competetion? If I were to want a significant improvement in sound what sort of price phones would I need to be looking at? I must admit to liking a good deep bass beat (Currently using some TDL transmission line speakers), which is the one area I feel the DT440's are a bit lacking.
Musical taste is anything from Pink floyd, dire straits, Enigma etc to DJ Tiesto, and the phones will be used directly into a Sony CDP337ES cd player or possibly a PC with MAudio 24/96 Audiophile card for digitally stored music.
Funds are fairly limited so hi end phones are probably out of my reach but how would something like Klipsh Image ones or Beats Solo compare to what I have?
