One headphone. Thats it! - Page 5

With these guys I get almost the entire range of music covered with near-specialized cans at each end, but with a darned good overlap in the middle to be able to study the tunes from two distinct angles.

Jolly fun!

Using these two as an example, the MS2i sells for $300 and the HD600 for about the same. However; the very very close HD580 sells for just a bit over $100 or so.

Again; this is just an example of what works quite well for one very satisfied listener.
Very similar to my two main headphones: HD600 and 325i.

I find them to be a good contrast/compliment to one another. I also happen to use them on the amp that the OP is waiting to receive, thought the 325i has been getting all of my attention lately.

One of them custom IEMs... can't bring the Orpheus system with you while you jog can you?

You are not hardcore enough. Jogging with 90 pounds of amp, source, and battery pack is the real way to exercise.

Thought it would be the HE90 for me, which is why I got rid of everything else that I had before...

But with hearing the K1000s finallyl, I wonder if that will change...
Perhaps it's the novelty of having a different sound.
Or perhaps they are both so different and unique in their own way that they complement each other.

Back to the topic...He90 still, but not as firm of a choice as it used to be.

I rather just rent a truck and setup a million dollar speaker rig where I jog than jogging around with 90 pounds of crap.

I like too many of them, so I'd vote that I get to keep them all.

Ok, if I had to keep just one, it would be a toss up between the HE90 and R10. At this point, I'd probably say the HE90, but I'll reserve judgment until after I've heard the R10 with the SDS-XLR and the HE90 with the ES-1. It might even be necessary to get the R10's balanced, but that's a tough call. I'd hate to take a risk of messing them up in any way.

You can have a personal band for a million dollars, musicians are pretty cheap on the black market.

I don't think I can hire all the bands, symphonies, groups...etc I listen to with one million dollars. Some of them might kick the bucket too...

EDIT: I don't think I can raise the dead either.

Ah...hardcore.

This is OT for sure, but when I bought my bike for excercize and fun, it was a high quality piece more tuned for racing/centuries and weighed a nice lightweight 23 pounds.

I found it was jolly fun for commuting the 25 miles to work and back all year round even in Michigan winters.

Decked out with lots of lights, reflectors, battry packs and bags for clean clothes at work(we had a gym with showers)the weight sat at a plump 52 pounds. Good excercize!

Are you forgetting the big batteries or portable power generator?

Ok....if I went with MS-Pro to replace my MS2i, what with the MS-Pros increased soundstage and better bass extension, perhaps that would do it for a one-can-fits-all situation....if, and only IF, I could keep the HD600s for pipe organ music only!

I wouldn't be an entirely happy camper, but I suppose that could work.
