Also one of my favorite vocalists period. And she has an amazing story too (she used music to recover from a really terrible car accident injury)
I dig her new album so much, it's my favorite yet of hers!

Yeah, she did a song about it on her first album. Pretty amazing story, IMO. No idea how you have a voice that is so unbelievably good and you go that long without knowing it. Unfortunate way to find out though, of course.
I went back and listened to some of my John Adams (gran pianola music) and Steve Reich (music for 18 musicians) after that comment! Man I love all this music (I haven't yet seen all of Koyaanisqatsi yet, but I really love what I have seen so far, and the music is so excellent) I find minimalism to be really powerful, emotionally speaking.
very true, but at least here on head-fi we have excellent varied taste in music!
This is what I've been able to work out over the years:
The basic sound is essentially the same between all the models (ignoring the PS500/GS1000i/PS1000, which have further modification to increase the bass) but they do all sound different. Sometimes the difference is pretty subtle, but it's there.
What's great is that you can buy an SR80i and have an amazing headphone for relatively little money. If you like the sound, you can buy one of the higher up models and know you're going to get something that has the same basic signature but sounds better (and with a more luxurious build, of course)
