Lol, I love SA but I am afraid of the forums.
Been a member of SA forums for quite a while now. Love that place as much as any other place I frequent...
I don't know what I'm looking for to be honest. I'm creating a list of headphones I need to buy, and own, and up until a few days ago the Z1000 was a part of it. It still might be...
To be honest though, I'd like the list to contain open backed hps as well as closed back, with small soundstages as well as big ones, bassy ones as well as non-bassy ones as well as neutral ones, portable as well as non-portables, and so on. I want different things, but I'm not sure which headphones to include and exclude. I always thought of the Z1000 to be a resistant member of that list, but since there is the 1R, I might choose that one as a "better closed sony portable". I mean, I'll still have other closed portables on there as well, but I don't want to have too many of the same brand, so one closed Sony should be enough. Also, since I'm no millionaire, I'm mostly looking at mid grade stuff with a budget of perhaps maximum $3-400 per headphone. Also, I think I'll invest in one pair of headphones monthly, unless I choose to include some super cheap ones as well, like the superluxes - in which case I could buy more than one. We could simplify it by saying I'll be buying diferent headphones for 3-400 each month for a while.
Just some stupid idea. Headphones are becoming more and more like STDs for me: Gotta catch them all.
