 We're getting a strong enough group of local guys, that a few small mini-meets at homes may be in order...
   They're different animals for sure. The Senns are darker, in comparison, but there's a reason they are so wildly popular.    I wouldn't feel comfortable pushing you in one way or the other since it's such a subjective thing.  Search the site and you'll find plenty of threads comparing the two in great detail. As for amps, how much are you wanting to spend?  I'm always quick to recommend Schiit gear.  Something as cheap as the Vali would probably be a great pairing with...
Ah, my biggest regret is not snagging the Ethers to listen to on my own humble setup.  But, with Dan's assortment of amps, it was hard not to have fun listening to those gems.     As I said in the Ether impressions thread, I think it's the real deal.  Very clear and detailed sound without being harsh or aggressive.  It's a headphone I could relax to without having to sacrifice detail in the process.  I was especially impressed with how it handled classical music.  I wish...
 I can confirm no noise on the 500s. There is a good deal background hiss with the DT1350, however.  It's not really noticeable while music is playing, which is a plus, but I very rarely use the 1350s with this amp.
I can't compare them to the alpha pads, but I had no problem with the earpads on the Ether.  It was funny, because after taking them off I looked at the earpad and thought the opening looked pretty small.  But, while wearing them it never crossed my mind as being an issue. As for clamping force, I typically like a strong clamp and can't stand it when headphones feel loose on my head.  It's a major reason I prefer the DT1350 over the more popular T51p.   When wearing the...
I was lucky enough to spend some time with Dan at the Nashville meet today and listen to the Ether on some really top-notch gear.   I'm not going to go into great detail since 30-40 minutes of listening just isn't enough time, but I came away very impressed.  The sound is clear, detailed, and fast without ever sounding harsh or aggressive.  Comfort is top-notch and, while looks are subjective, I found them to be refined to a level that matches the price tag.   It seems...
Yeah, I was worried about you Jay, when you hadn't shown up. Hope all is well...
There's a pretty awesome record store here in Nashville (Grimey's) if you want to hit it up while you're in town.
I've taken pictures at our past meets, but I am MORE than happy to pass the torch onto you gentlemen.  It'll be nice to listen to music all day without anything else interfering 
 I'd definitely enjoy playing around with the fiio x1. From Louisville?  That means you have access to Skyline Chili whenever you want it.  That also means I am supremely jealous.   Gents, dinner in the downtown area on Friday night could be a bit iffy with the Predators playoff game going on.  Waiting for Theo to chime in...
