 Really? The pro 9's have nothing to compare to when it comes to electronic. I love em.

HD 598s.  Disappointing boxiness to the sound that lends an inescapable artifical sound to a lot of things.  I am yet to hear them reproduce a realistic string sound.  I don't want to sell these, but I might have to :(

string sound? you mean like guitars? you should go for those vintage akg instead =)

Everything from Beats, Bose, Skullcandy, Sol Republic, Soul By Ludacris, Monster.

No, sorry, I should have been clearer, I meant an orchestral string sound.

post #639 of 666

no worries =)

i also think the 598 doesnt work well with orchestral music even if they have an open sound

I'd like for that to be the case. I think many others would agree. I mean putting an end to the hunt for head fi perfection and at a reasonable cost? Somehow i just dont see that happening though. Likewise if Sennheiser themselves hit such a goal i think we would of seen a much prettier product at an extremely high price tag.

So reading through this thread, it seems that Grado make the most overrated headphones.

Any headphone discussed on head fi qualifies as over rated, therefore iPod buds are the best headphones in production.

BOOM! Thread. Over.

It's bad enough that beats are terribly overpriced and overrated, but it's even worse when these kids praise it as if it's a God among headphones, and aren't willing to try anything else because they're already brainwashed by ******** marketing strategies.

What's even worse is how most people with Bose headphones think that they are the best sounding headphones on the market, even though they've only compared them to Beats by Dre and iBuds.
