I need some help here making a decision. I accidentally destroyed my SRH440 and have to send back my SRH940 due to a growing hairline crack. Here's my current setup:
Here's where I'm at with the contenders mentioned in the title:
SRH1840 : not tested, got a great quote from local shop (return policy kinda of sucks, 25% packaging fee), concerned about build quality due to experience with SRH940
Grado RS1i : liked them a lot, loved the treble, not very comfortable, looked cool, made in my hometown, most expensive
Grado PS500 : liked them as well but not as much the RS1i, better bass than the RS1i (I'm not a basshead), treble didn't chime as well RS1i, not very comfortable, looked cool, made in my hometown
AKG 550 : Über comfortable, nice bass & warmth, I thought the treble was a tad lacking, least expensive
All comments & suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
