Definitely. I'd love to know how they do.

So far this past 2 weeks, I have had 2 friends of mine buy the Monoprice 8323. I even bought myself another pair. I just wanted a set that was more bass light, but then I began to miss the isolation. So, 20 bucks on sale, I got another pair. My favorite giant killers.

I really want to try the monoprice too by the way. But let me just say thet the real giant killer is the Beyer DT250-250 Ohm. They are better then the hd600 and hd650 for much less money its ridiculous!

I'd have to put in the Superlux HD681. It's basically a even cheaper 668b.

With the quarter mod and peeling off the sticker that blocks part of the driver, these things sound AWESOME!

The superluxes are crap to me. Bright and honky. Let the old time headfiers speak if they are great when modded but otherwise I only believe they are nothing but crap.

The hd800s might be okay ut definitely crap when compared with the experience of listening to speakers of the same price range. We have to kill the expensive headphone movement before it expands My Gawd! The businessmen are getting nuts!!! Kill them by saying NOI

Philips Downtown (less than $100 on line)

 

Just amazing how right they sound. Extremely comfortable too.

Folks on RockGrotto have been singing their praises for the past several years now and have come up with many ways to "unhonkify" them. They've also found differences between batches in sibilance and treble fatigue, so maybe you just heard a bad unit.

they have to make them right unmodded to begin with.

I killed myself with my Sennheiser HD598. Never heard a pair that's so versatile in its price range.

The fostex t50rp's with a little mod work can be giant killers. biggrin.gif
