You don't need to spend a ton, a good used set of SR-5 will do.
They went out of production nearly 50 years ago or something like that but they're better than the Senn 600 for sure.
Headphones are essential here, my wife likes to sleep in on her days off and I can't use speakers. Or she's working from home and I can't use the speakers.
Or I'm listening to Eric Dolphy and can't use the speakers. Heh.
I wouldn't be without them, but I won't use anything but Stax (although I'm considering the Nectar HiveX). I've used Sennheisers and they're excellent but they're not as good as Stax.
The blissful counterstroke-a considerable new message.
