Say no more.
Done and done.
mmm..well I read that the highs are very bright and I listen to medium-highs volumes (not dangerously highs) so I'm afraid the highs will be too harsh, is that the case?
Not at all. They didn't bother me and I'm pretty sensitive to treble. Everyone differs though.
The HD600 is better at higher volumes though, because it needs a bit of volume to wake up. The SRH1440 may get bright if you really crank it.
HD600 and SRH1440 are two my favorite dynamics (had them both at the same time). At the time, I liked the SRH1440 more. If I were to pour money into my rig, I'd get the HD600 instead.
I asked the same question; the hd600 is better at higher volumes.
The audio technica website says it costs 1000 but amazon has them for 350 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B0006OQY32/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all) Why are they so cheap on amazon?
EDIT: Is there a difference between the AD1000 and the AD1000PRM? And do you think they will be better for rock than the hd600? How's the bass in them? Also, the two main things I want its upfront mids and smooth highs, do they have smooth highs like the hd600?
You deserve a medal for that. Head-Fi graph of the year. I use use that for a HE-400 review and that only. No words, no explanations required. Just that graph
I have to play Devils advocate here, DON'T BELIEVE GRAPHS!!!! THEY ARE SIMPLY NOT AN OBJECTIVE STATEMENT ON THE HEADPHONES SOUND!!!! I for one thought the Grado RS2 to have a neutral treble, others will not. Graphs really mean nothing. You don't listen to headphones with your eyes, trust your ears and read reviews based on HEARING the headphone.
