Hello every body
I'm gonna buy my first audiophile headphone and i seek detailed & very clear sound without tweaks ( i'm a musician & an addict to baroque, classical & other modern orchestra music) .... from my research i'm currently choosing between grado sr60i & the sennheiser hd598 or hd518 :)) ... yeah i know it is strange because they are not in the same price group ... but i red many reviews talking about the legendary sound of the sr60i for the price ...... the question is does it came any close to the hd598 ? (& i will be using Sansa clip + without an amp ) because if so i would like to save the extra money :))
Please help :)
The 60i is an excellent entry level rock/blues/classic country can. I would not recommend it for you other listed genres. The more expensive HD 598 is much better for them, as well as a very strong all arrounder.
At about the same price or less than the HD 598, the Grado SR 225i is the sweet spot in Grado SR line. However, the genres for which is best matched is the same as the 60i. it simply does all of these even better in the Grado way.
Can't tell you anything specific on how well they play with the Sansa, except to say that both Grados as efficient enough to work with almost anything.
