Cheers.


A sad day for me yesterday.  The aforementioned klipschs finally bit the dust.  Can of coke in my bag decided to empty itself over all the contents and the iems were inside.  Not that bothered as they were only a £20 headphone at the end of the day it's more the timing that sucks.  Another week or so and my customs should be back from their third refit!

Wish list: Bose AE1, AKG K240 600 ohm, Fostex T50RP. 

AE1 are worth trying if you like the AE2; haven't heard the other two. redface.gif

Oh, and I'm using my computer's speakers right now - it's early and I'm leaving soon.

HD800. My LCD 2.2 have now settled into their new home. HD800s are all I've got for now. :D

Where did your LCD-2's go?

 

EDIT: Oh, and rocking the Grado PS1000's as of the moment. Getting a lot of head time.

Sold them. I found the HD800 bested them in almost every way.

Not to de-rail. One last question, how does the bass compare?

Bass quantity was the only place the LCD 2 bested the HD800. Extension and detail stayed about the same (as that was what the LCD 2 was best at). I was worried and that's why I initially was keeping both, but after doing some A/Bing I just decided to keep the HD800.

Doin it big I see.

Anyways, I'm not that hardcore, and am using a single pair of headphones at one time - the Sony MDR-F1.

My cheap beyerdynamic DT 235's, starving college students can only dream of having a high fi setup. =(

post #210 of 1567

Not too keen on the big setup's either.

 

Running a iPod touch -> Se215's. I had some HD-25's but they are too bulky for me (lol). I've gotta move around a lot, or have one ear open, so I can't really use headphones. Gotta love the IEM's.

 

Sometimes I throw in a LOD and a cMoyBB, but not too often as the foot print is too large.
