I just bought a pair of SR-60's for recabling in the silver I use for my UE cables... and before I even gut these, I'm listening to "Human After All" by Daft Punk from my modded X-fi [Op-amps and black gate cap] and jesus, these things have great bass impact!
This is before I even so much as look at any EQ settings mind you. I'm not bashing any other headphones out there but honestly after all these years I've had an SR-225 and now revisiting these with the donut pads, I'm wondering why I even bothered! I remember the first time I owned these WHILE owning
Sennheiser CX-300s and I found these unimpressive but after years of silver cabled 225 and HD580 goodness, I'm fairly certain I was pretty damn wrong. I was always afraid to recommend these to people because they didn't have enough bass, but these are still hands down the best cans for under 100 regardless of how old they are or what else is on the market.
Time for the recable while I listen to some Paul Gilbert...
I WOULD consider selling off the HD580 if it weren't so dang comfortable...
Have a great day folks!
Yes, they are uncomfortable.
