I get use to them after a while. I love the LP's since they are my first set of headphones. If you have any questions about them, feel free to PM me or something ^^

Im really hoping I can find a pair of these to test out on my own before I make the switch, well considering now that this other member is telling me they have plenty punch to them with his amp (maybe I got a defective pair, doubt it but who ever knows I guess -shrug-),  but I want to at least browse the market and get an idea of whats out there. The LP2's were really attractive to me in terms of build style, accesories included (love the strength of the cables and being removeable) and everything really, just going to come down to whether or not their sound signature/quality is what im looking for. If they have a more appealing sound even by the slightest to me im 99% confident I'll make the switch.

Glad someone can provide some clarity on this for me. I appreciate it.

Theres defiantly no animosity between me and the uptowns, they are great headphones for people with proper setup's and who have everything they need to power them and everything, they just weren't what I was looking for I guess, I'll put em through their final test thursday at Guitar Center but i'll also be trying out new ones while there.

 

The Pro900 and Denon's are both out of my range so they wouldn't really be that good of an option for me lol.

 

As far as the DT770, its an option but im worried about being able to drive them from my laptop/phone ampless, from my understanding being that their 250 ohm (and I believe an 80 ohm version?) they require more power to drive. I might be wrong on that aspect but thats how I understood it from what i had seen around.

From what I have heard the JVC S500 offer a lot more that just bass. They are supposed to a very good budget headphone that punches way over it's price tag.

B&H is taking pre orders on a 32 ohm DT770. On the other hand I won't even listen to my 990 premium 32ohm on an ipod due to loss in SQ so there you go.....
