Grado SR80i about a month ago, with HD650s in transit right now!  Need something to compare the Grados to, right?

The dt880s. Before I got here I had
the Beats Tour lol. Actually I came here because of the beats because I wanted to know how a good headphone sounds after listening to them.

A pair of grado sr225i, I bought after reading many reviews here and demo them localy, I demoed them on a Saturday and a pair of sr325i and liked the fact the 325 had more bass but the highs where almost painful frown.gif I told the sales guy I would probably be back the next day to buy one of the two, I went back that Sunday and bought the sr225i, I never knew headphones could sound that good until now smily_headphones1.gif

Nice! Which do you like more?
post #834 of 910
I definitely prefer the he-400. The bass extension is great and the highs are awesome, though there can be sibilance especially with a neutral amp. The Mad dogs feel "boxed in" by comparison which I think is a combination of it being Semi closed and the highs are not nearly as prominent. They are a very mid focused HP in my opinion.

Idk if I have already posted my first headphone but it was a HD650, and now I'm about to upgrade to a TH-900.....

 

"DAMN YOU HEAD-FI!!!!!!"- my wallet.

AKG Q701, an excellent headphone, still one of my favourites.

First amp/DAC  are getting on Head Fi was the iBasso D12.

 

Recently I upgraded to the Stax SR-2170 system. And I do mean UPGRADE!

I bought a Beyerdynamic DT770 pro 80 ohm to use while recording and mixing, but it was when I bought a used AKG K271 studio that I found Head-fi google'ing for reviews on the AKG K271.

Since I registered I ordered a Somic MH489 that should be on it's way now. But the purchase was no directly related to this site. I stumbleb upon it while looking for Takstar headphones on Aliexpress.

 

The Takstar I was checking out because of the Takstar thread on this forum though biggrin.gif

iI had bought a pair of Beats Pro just as a temporary buy while I looked into what headphones I wanted to invest in,  as well as to try them out. Around the time I had found head-fi and was looking into a good first buy. I had heard of V-Moda before I found head-fi so that was the first thing I looked into. And surprisingly it was right around the time where the M-100 was getting super hyped from pre-orders. So I waited a bit and got the M-100s. I really enjoy them and find it was probably the best first buy I could have done.
