200-300 dollar cans for alternative rock. - Page 5

post #61 of 118

SR60 + cloth removal + grill removal + hole poking (1 one a side) + E7 + WASAPI = win. It's no longer as harsh or shrill in the highs, has a little more body in the bass, electric guitar's super prominent, less congestion in the mids, vocals are great. Comfort is still meh though. Perfect for The Killers type of music. If the Alessandros sound like my SR60s, then they're definitely worth 99 USD, IMO. 

 

It depends on how you like you like your music. As for me, I find the Grados very engaging. Doesn't have much of a soundstage, but it presents the guitar and vocals very well, which is what I look for in alt. rock. You might not be able to stand the highs and lack of bass... It's an acquired taste. Don't buy them unless you can try them on at a store first (which probably won't happen since you're in Sweden lol).

 

On topic:

 

Alternatively, you can get the Fostex T50RP. Bhphoto just emailed me that they are in stock. They get very good reviews and are very modifyable. Botbyte owns one and he likes it a lot... Maybe ask him how it sound. Apparently it's got really great bass extension and amazing mids. Modding is fun. You mod, you screw up, boo. You mod again, you end up with something that you really like, you get the satisfaction buying a 600 dollar CLAS or a 500 dollar headphone can't give you. You'll get bored ****less with a non-moddable phone. 

 

lol.

By the way, isn't the Shure SRH-940 a bit bass light?

Yes it is, but the bass is really good quality.

I think you should get AD1000 and XB1000 then you'll be very happy xD

I'm starting to think that my previous idea of getting the XB700 and AD700 would suite me. If not, I could just send them back and then I will know what I want! Oh, the dilemma...

People usually use AD700 for positional audio. For FPS gaming.

Two things you can conclude from this. Good sound stage, really weak bass. 

XB700 sucks for rock.

 

:s

Yeah, but AD700 is decent for rock? With the XB700 I could satiate my bass hunger.
