Back to the original thread question, Grado GS 1000's.
I would have to respectfully disagree with this evaluation. I believe several others who have owned the Proline 750s and 2500s and subsequently purchased the UE9s over on the big Ultrasone thread would disagree as well.
I think it is wonderful that you prefer the GS1000, others may also feel these are the best at Rock as well.
Given all that, I think if a poll were to be taken, due to the limited experience around here for the UE9s, that the Sony R10 and Orpheus system would win out over the UE9s. While I could not make such an assessment since I have not spent any time with either of these alternatives comparing them with my UE9s.
The UE9s are great for me as I use them.
