post #6286 of 19434

thanks for the info guys. i've decided to buy a set of Beyerdynamic DT880 over the Grados cos i have never actually tried a set of Grados on. thought I best be safe about my first venture into semi-audiophile land haha. I wouldn't mind buying a set of SR60i in the future. they sound like very interesting headphones...and i like the look if i got some wooden cups on them. maybe after I buy my tube amp. thanks anyway guys

I would recommend the SR60i with L-Cush pads. The L-Cush pads are key.

 

Or, if you want slightly more bass and a slightly more aggressive sound, grab the SR80i with L-Cush pads for $20 more.

No problem with a cheaper option. I liked my Shure SRH1440 until I started to listen to jazz. I found them a little too distant and polite. I bought a pair of Grado SR225i and since then it's true love!
 
So much that I'm gonna buy a RS1i pair very soon!

Cool-I just bought the SR225i and am waiting for my Schiit Asgard 2- but more for rock, metal, indie, folk, etc.

 

I'm saving and thinking of the HE400 or 500 as as a second set of cans, but could be tempted by the RS1i as well.

 

How about the 500? I'm going to have to give that an audition....

 

I'm thinking RS1 and HE 500 would be pretty darn sweet- and about $1400 spent!

Anyone can say about possible synergy/other experience with Objcetive2 and sr325?

post #6292 of 19434
I think I can join the fan club now.
I just picked up a pair of iGrados.
They are replacing the Sennheiser PX-100 ii that I lost! redface.gif

I prefer the iGrados. biggrin.gif

The O2 is a transparent amp, so I don't think the term, synergy, applies.

 

Personally, I've had the SR325is for three weeks and I think they sound great with the O2. I hardly listen to my HD-650's since I bought the Grados.

I know what you mean, i sold my HD600, not long after i've bought my GS1000 and never regreted it.

I agree the MS2i's reproduce guitars beautifully.

I listen to jazz-rock 50/50 and I might even enjoy the way they do the jazz more than the rock at times.

So true!
