    Another one of my 1000 interests is high end audio headphone amps and headphones. This is my new Sennheiser HD820 Headphone Amp & Headphones. Lets see your headphones setups everyone..!

    I saw a guy driving his car yesterday with headphones on his head. It amazes me that a driver can have such little sense :(

    Zero interest in donning headphones while in a car at all. I like taking a set of ear buds while on long haul 15+ hour flights to help kill the time..

    So to return to the purpose of this thread ... ;)

    I need to buy some headphones so that I can listen to music on the wireless (better known as my phone) without disturbing my wife :) I know zero about headphones, so tell me what is the extent of the difference between "high end" stuff and the things I see in my local shops priced at £25? And why do you use an amp to connect up to?

    Here is something for you to read about it with me not have to type it all.. What's a headphone amp, and do you really need one? The answer may surprise you

    High End headphones can range from several thousand dollars and up to as much as $80,000.00 for a pair. The same goes for the Amps that drive them too..

    For your phone, it might be more prudent to get some Bluetooth ear phones. They don't cost much, and work very well.

    Silver connectors for a better listening pleasure is possibly another gimmick at $165.00 each but sure think is improves myself..
