Ill definitely look into the Planars but think im going to pass on another pair of Grados.The Grados pads bother my ears and im looking for a true over the ear experience. Do the 500s use the large bowls found on the 1000s or are they the regular sized pads found on my HF-1s?
   Thanks for the responses.I have read that they arent that comfortable.Do the pads go completely over the ear or are they on-ear? Any other differences between the 400 and the 400i? Any other cans I should consider? Maybe Fidelio x2?
 You were right, I tried using the AAm2 on my laptop and no static.So, its definitely NOT the AA and its not my USB port (as I tried all of them). So what next?
Thanks for the reply. Its definitely not the recordings as I listened to the exact same tracks on my Ipad with the same cans and theres no static.I guess I could try using the AAmicro on my laptop to see if its not working properly. Can you recommend a good desktop DAC w/Amp, sub-$150?
Ive had these beauties for ages now and adore them but they are just not comfortable post 1 hour. Also, I find they lack a bit in soundstage and separation.   I am looking for an open-back, stay at home-only jack of all trades-can, under $5/600.   Something that can handle everything from extreme metal, to dubstep to classical. Comfort is critical.   I dont have an amp...but am about to get a DAC (possibly a Fiio), as I listen to most of my music by my...
I am using a pair of Grado HF-1, connected to an Audio Advantage Micro 2, which is connected to my Dell. I have no (decent) sound card to speak of. I have been noticing when listening to piano that I have this low lying static in the background. Ive tested a variety of setups; its definitely not the headphones or the AA Micro-its something wrong with my soundcard/motherboard.   I know NOTHING about DACs but many friends have recommended I get a Fiio (I forget which...
My girlfriend doesnt like true IEM's-she prefers something that just slightly enters the ear, akin to the Bose Freestyle or Soundsport.   Any suggestions?   Id get her the Bose but she has lost two pairs thus far and its getting expensive...
 Thanks for the suggestion but would rather not have an over the ear version (I probably should have mentioned that in the post above).Maybe I should be looking for one of those flat-wired IEMs, like what beats uses? 
I love the VSonic Gr02's but I go through about 2-3 pairs a year because the tension I put on the jack ultimately leaves me with no sound in one ear. I dont know if I am actually just putting too much tension on the jack when I wrap the headphones around my ipod/phone or if they are just not made well.   Either way, would like something with solid bass (but not bloated), that has  strong wire.   Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
Im not sure I even know what it is, but id liek to try it out. Good album to intro me to the genre?   Also, is Foals or Battles considered math rock?   Really digging Antidotes...
