I've done a ton of research, reading lots of reviews here, and on amazon. I already have a decent set of headphones: the jvc harx 700. I like them, but I don't 'love' them.
They're fairly close to neutral, with a bit of extra bass, and a little bit of treble roll off.
I'd like a second set of headphones which offer a bit more excitement and emotional involvement. I'm considering the grado sr60i's. Even with a pair of s cushions, the price is still south of $100, which is important to me.
Based on the reviews, I'm sure I'll be getting great sound quality. However, I'm a bit concerned about comfort and the ability to use these for longer listening sessions. Will the s cushions be sufficient to allow me to listen for longer sessions?
Also, some reviewers complain that the sound can be fatiguing. I'm hoping that this criticism is limited to:
a. certain types of recordings only: ie sources which are very treble heavy
b. listening sessions at high volume.
Any feedback is appreciated, and let me know if I should post this in the grado thread as well. Thanks!
