My SR80s are arriving tomorrow. Been using senn PX 100s for my main listening, since they're one of the only decent ones available in the Philippines.
I love my PX100s, perfect for on the road, but after a year of heavy use and more than a little abuse they're breaking down on me. Left phone rattling at low frequencies, padding on the faux leather headband fraying. I'm due for an upgrade.
It's the people on this thread who convinced me to go for the sr80s rather than the MS1s or a handful of other senns. Keep you all posted on my grado experience, how it fares upon first listen, after a few weeks, after burn-in, etc...
Thanks all! Excited as hell and it's all your faults.
Using them as we speak, loving them. Unfortunetly, I made a headphone stand and spray painted it a nice silver, but was too much in a rush to put the headphones on em, and got some silver paint on the headband.
My birthday is soon, so with the money I get, they will be put toward Customs and maybe a fatman711 leather headband and a recable or something, we'll see
