Hey, I had a question for you guys
Meanwhile, the Signature Pro is the only headphone I own and for me, it's an excellent "do it all" can, since good for both home and portable use. I was just wondering, is it worth purchasing an open/semi-open headphone at some point to become my headphone for home use (and the signature pro for portable use)? After reading these forums a bit before purchasing the signature pro, the sig pro seems to hold it's own against most expensive flagships like the beyer T1, LCD-2, HE-500, etc. despite being. Therefore, if I purchase an open headphone for home use such as the T1, LCD-2, HE-500, HE-6, TH900, etc. would it be a big improvement over the signature pro and would I end up using it at home all the time instead of the sig pro, or would it be more of a side grade? Also, if it is an improvement over the sig pro in every way, is it a huge upgrade (worth the money) or is it just a slight upgrade (if it's just a slight upgrade, it's not worth the extra money IMO)?
Personally I think its good to have at least one of each and preferably they have different signatures. A closed can won't sound like an open can they are just different form factors and have different characteristics. When I owned the DT770 and HD600 it was great hearing the differences of each headphone. I still miss the HD600. I do want to get another open can down the road. I lo e the sennheiser sound but to me the hd800 sound cold. Maybe the hd700 would be a better choice.
Long story short its no coincidence that most of the top rated headphones are opened. I don't think you should deprive yourself of that open/airy sound.
