Oh, no... not for classical. Grados/Alessandros are in my ears completely off for classical. No, thanks.

for me AKG 501 is off. very big off. sorry.

I had the K501 but there are many headphones I would take over them. I found they were enjoyable but on a technical level they just don't compare to the flagships or even the flagships of old in the DT880, HD650, etc.

Thank you for this awesome review. One of the most extended I've ever saw. Nice DAC by the way.

On a technical level? Can you please be more precise? What makes DT880 for example better on a "technical level"? Or HD650 for that matter?

it seems rather random to post this here, but since I'm the OP,  I figured it's a worthwhile thing to do....

 

I'm a huge Chick Corea fan (to my knowledge, I have a copy of everything he's ever done .... including all his sideman work).  For those familiar with his portfolio, that's a lot of music right there.  Last year he released a massive jazz/classic work on Deutsche Grammophon. I recommend it to every one because aside from being wonderfully recorded, it probably is the most significant work Chick's ever done and (IMHO) it probably is among the best CDs classical, jazz, rock or otherwise, that I've ever picked up.  

 

 

 

i listened to it 4 nights this week:)

Feel free to post in your own thread, LOL :)

 

I can appriciate this, because I (and probalby a lot of people with me) am always looking for good and well-recorded music. And since Deutsche Grammophon is well known for their well recorded records it is worth a try.

Funny, because yesterday I started listening to the albums you listed in the first post to see if there was something among it that I like but didn't know yet. Such postings are perfect to get to known new records. And even more fun when they are well-recorded. So keep posting them please!

Yaya I love Chick Corea as well. My dad introduced me to his music through his "Return to Forever" album. Beautiful music.

 

And although not the same, I like Hiromi Uehara's music as well.

^ so catchy to me

Oh I'm glad people are using it!  :) Maybe I should add a few more that I've used since posting the initial review, hmm..

That RTF album is classic! One of the first ECM albums too.
