Full Size Headphone first timer....help please...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok i've been using IEMs and with a portable amp connected to an android device (when on the move) for a little while now but sometimes i get irritated with IEMs when i'm out and about so would like to add some full size headphones to my arsenal.

I know a lot of people who are familiar with full size don't know much about IEMs so you can't really compare to the ones i used when it comes to full size so i've been borrowing a friends full size to try and work out what i'm after.



Here's what i've found so far...

Grado SR60 - nice power...not quite enough low end for my particular tastes (not far off though)

Goldring DR150 - slightly under powered...good overall soundstage for my tastes in music

So it seems i'm after something thats a cross between the two of them and i would need it closed (i know open is better but since it's for when i'm out and about i doubt people want to hear my tunes).

Budget wise...£50-100 i'm not looking for the ultimate...just a decent starter that ticks the boxes for the above...

Location....i'm in the UK so UK sellers are preferrable...

Any help is much appreciated

If you like the Grado Sr60i and are handy you can mod them to add some low-end to them.

No problem, there's a bunch of Grado mods available in a few threads. They are definitely the ultimate modding headphone.
