Yeah I was thinking the bass is pretty exaggerated on those phones. I've been hearing a lot about the MS-1. Can someone describe those to me? What are the ear cushions like? are they circum or superaural? More importantly, the sound! I also like the fact they are built in USA
Does it have all the accessories and box? Is it modded?
apart from the AKG K240, are there any other reccomendations that fall into my criteria? And I'm not really looking for used, since that would broaden the criteria up too much. maybe try keeping it under $150 so i can compared it against the K420

I read a little bit on the forums that its muddier. Would a brand new K271 be worth about $150 (i really want everything in the package, pad ans coils)? How would the K271 compare to the HD555 or AD700 which are a lot cheaper.

They will sound similar and have a different fit. AD700 isn't bass light, but it's not it's strong suit. Soundstage and imaging are great plus they don't need an amp. The HD580s nyjets28 suggest almost require an amp to sound their best further adding to your...
I have the HD205, they never loosen up. They don't sound that great either. My PortaPros really give them a good thrashing.
Hi I'm new! I've been lurking for a while through google. So I just re-ripped a bunch of stuff in FLAC and I've been listening through my modded PortaPros. It's pretty good but its not great for long sessions (sweaty and uncomfy after a while). I'm also pretty sure its very colored plus the cord is too short. I just want to get the most out the FLAC files as I can afford. I'm also interested in returning my portapros to stock. I'm thinking about getting into mixing...
