It's a pity that ShopTheStates have closed. They were good.

1 Week with my SR60s

I got mine used last Friday and yesterday I finally had a chance to try them out with my iPod. Yes indeed the highs are shrill but I could hear a lot more detail than I've ever been able to make out with non IEM phones. I've been using my Shure E2Cs for about a year now but I was getting tired of hearing the thud thud thud of my feet while I'm walking. It's a trade off, traffic noise vs. impact noise, I figured I needed a break!
What I don't like about the SR60s has to bee the length of the cord and it's thickness, the Shure's were just the right length, now I'm dealing with twist-ties and a big bundle of black cord.
Now I wonder what the iGrados will be like, will they be a little more convienent in size and weight/cord length? I'm waiting for a review.

Cheers

I sold them to him

Anyways, i like em when I had em, I just coulden't get over the amount of noise it leaked in/out, and neede a closed can for university. Otherwise, i would've kept em for sure.

What type of music or instruments do you hear this on? My ears, admittedly, are not the best, but I would like to know what to listen for.

Thanks

Them Highs!

I was listening to Blondie, Greatest hits, on my iPod, had to turn the volume down depending on the song, the higher notes on the guitar and organ and Deborah Harries voice were when I needed to turn it down.
I was reminded of watching Eyes Wide Shut using my HD570s, there's a set piano notes that are so striking it almost made my eyes water (just the sound not the movie!
I'll have to try out my SR80s in the same situation and see, although I gave up on wearing them with my iPod when walking because the bowls didn't sit well against my glasses. Now the 80s have flats & they're on my computer, the 60s sit better on me when I'm walking.
I've only iPoded (is that a word?) with the SR80s one day, tonight I'll try some different music, maybe the soundtrack to CRUMB!

Cheers

Do people think the sr60 benefits from an amp, or not so much?

The SR60 sounds well from almost all headphone outputs, but it benefits a lot in terms of dynamic, extension on the highs, and control of the bass and velocity from a good amp (I think it's better a solid state amp with a very low impedance output).

I think so. Out of my Melos, they sound much improved with a warmer more dynamic body about them. Bass seems to extend further as well with a rich tone.

But, they sound better just out of my bithead than my iPod anyway... anything benefits from a cleaner signal.

HD414? Do you have a link to pictures of those?

What about these Senn 19545's that Zanth posted?

the 19545s are the pads used on the Senn HD414, thus they are the same thing.

the SR 60s just came in today! and i'm loving it!!!

i never knew they could sound so good!

i haven't listened to it much, but they're great with techno, and rock. i'm listening to my mp3s right now, and i'm picking up alot more detail that i've missed before. it's like an entirely new experience for me! the bass is much more compact, and deeper than the hd-590. as for new age, they're okay, kinda make them a little too bright, but i guess that's where the Senns shine. then again, this is just my opinion. either way, this is a great buy!
