Fischer DBA-02: The comply pro tips really bring these headphones to life!
MEElectronics M6: strictly for the gym
1) Sony MDR-1R
2) UE 6000 (Like the sound as much as the Sony, but not quite as comfortable)
3) MrSpeakers MadDogs with Alpha Pads (very comfortable, high quality, sound kind of boring compared to the UE and the Sony)
1) Grado RS1i: Bright, aggressive, fun without being too harsh. I love these for anything with electronic guitars to classic music. The L-cushions are a bit painful after a few hours though.
2) Beyerdynamic DT990: Bright, has a bit more bass. Pretty good complement for the Grados. I use these for bassier music / games / movies. Super-comfortable.
3) Focal Spirit One: Darker but wouldn't call it warm. Clear. VERY fast bass. My #1 choice for portable use. Bassy but not overwhelmingly so, sensitive, a bit difficult to drive with a desktop amp. Very comfortable, but the headband tends to creak a little bit now and then.
4) Ultimate Ears UE700 (Newer version, IEM): Clear, insanely good all-rounders. Bright. Downsides are kinda annoyingly prominent microphonics plus the comply tips hurting my ears after a while.
5) Sennheiser HD555: Haven't used these for a while, but they were my #1s before I got the Grados. Easy to drive and good SQ. A bit bland-sounding.
6) Shure SE215CL (IEM): Bassiest of all the stuff that I have. Fun for electronic music and maybe some classical stuff, but I really dislike its sound for guitars (both electric and acoustic). Kinda artificial sound. More comfortable and less microphonics than on UE700 though.
1) Grado PS-1000
2) Grado HP-1000
3) Grado GS-1000
4) Grado SR-80i
5) Senneheiser HD400
6) Sony MDR-ex71
7) Sony MDR-ex90
Yes, i'm a Grado fan, not a fanboy, but definately a fan.
Great someone that have both the srh940 & hd800. Do you enjoy the hd800 significantly more than srh940 ? Is there some aspects of the srh940 that you miss while listening to the hd800 ?
Wow, the PS1000s ahead of the HP1000s?
