Yeah should be, and hopefully it will sound better without EQ as well.

I'm on my way over to the dark-rockboxed side now! xD



EDIT: And done! biggrin.gif

11 bucks from audio technica support

I experienced the most amazing sound on these today with orchestral music. I was using my phone, and I turned on the virtual room effect, which normally makes everything sound really bad, but with these it makes the treble much more powerful and aggressive, which made orchestral music perfect for me. I loved it!

 

I'm thinking about buying some Etys now for outside now, though. I'd love to have some isolation from the world again.

Also, is there no place to buy them other than ebay? $35 is a hefty price for pads, and I could get a pair of s400s for cheaper haha.

Just look through the past 10 or so pages, you will find what you need.

Should I as a beginner try these instead of an Grado SR80i (which I love, but isn't as portable (read, solid) as these)? This one is almost 3 times cheaper, so not really comparable but I would like to hear some opinions about it.

Desktop only or portable as well? If portable are you going to be just using a laptop only or is there a DAP involved?

Yes, these are much more versatile than the Grados. Also, the S500 have much better bass.

Oke thanks, so these are really good then. I loved the Grado's sound, so I am exited to hear these.

From what I understand, Grados are not un-portable because they're not solid, it's because they're open. The S500, hence, would be better for portable use based on that alone. i don't know where you got your Sr80i, but it shouldn't cost 3 times as much as the S500.
