I've never heard any of the phones you have Vertigo, these V6s are as high end I've ever gotten, but given your inventory, I don't see any reason why you should. To be honest, I only got a pair because they seemed like the perfect, practical, and most ideal portable headphone for someone with tastes like myself (portable = I'm lugging around a hefty backpack anyway). But because these are the only phones I have next to the sr-60, these will probably replace them as the home phones as well (maybe, gotta get the bowl pads and see how they do, probably alot more soundstage which I really like). If I thought the sr-60 was fit as a portable headphone in my enviroment (I didn't think the lack of isolation was all that bad, it was more of a build and practicality issue, grados being very impractical imo) I would have skipped the V6s, used the sr-60s as portables, and gone straight for the 325s as home phones (which I think I'm gonna do anyway, gotta see how I like the treble on them... heard their harsh!). Course, I don't have an amp, so I can't comment on how deep the bass can really go. In fact I shouldn't comment on anything considering my lack of expierience. But when I thought of deep bass, I thought of chest rumbleing deep like a speaker sub, which I soon realised just doesn't happen with headphones
. Basicaly, when people talked about deep bass, I thought they meant like impact and all this other bizness, when now that I've used them it just seems like the ability to actually reproduce low notes when other phones just kind of disregard them completely. Like finding a hidden treasure in recordings, but nothing down right special for me.
In all, I can't imagine a single other can that would serve as many of the purposes I was looking for in a headphone. Bass, isolation, effincieny, portability and buld quality. To me it now almost seems like a joke whenever I hear somebody reccomend a grado for portable purposes (at least the 60, 80 is probably better sound wise over all but I still don't think I'd reccomend it as a portable phone). As much as I hate alot of their ****, I'm gonna give it to sony for keeping these things in production cause god knows its gotta be KILLING them finanically to continue making these things
So peace, and thanks for the reccomendation.
