Hi all. I've recently rediscovered my love of music and I've got big plans for my year-end bonus as well as my tax return
I know I don't qualify to post in this thread (yet), but since it's new and I'm very interested in upgrading to a premium set of cans I thought this would be a good place for some feedback. I don't want to throw this thread off track though.
Right now I'm enjoying my sr60's a ton (got Rush on right now- Red Barchetta), but I really just want them for late night gaming, not so much just groovin to music.
I love the sound of my Grados and I want to know what some of you folks who have the higher-end models think about their sound for different styles of music.
I like to listen to a fairly wide range. I love fast and hard Rock music but when I really want to "listen" to good music I go to my acoustic tracks: Think, Life by the Drop by Stevie Ray Vaughan or The Eagles Seven Bridges Road. Other notables in my library (in no particular order): Green Day, The Black Eyed Peas, Patsy Cline, Chevelle, The White Stripes, George Jones, Beck, Weezer, ZZ Top to name a few.
I like classical too but I really don't have any "good" classical recordings, so that isn't a priority. I like string quartet pieces more that full-blown orchestral stuff. Jazz isn't my thing at all.
I've been considering the AKG K701's and I've read many good opinions about Dennon and Audio Technica, but I'm not sure if I'd enjoy a closed back design. I like to hear subtle details in the highs (hence my affinity for acoustic performance) so Senn's, from what I've read, may not be for me.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts
