Battle Of The Flagships (58 Headphones Compared) UPDATE: AUDEZ'E LCD-2 Revision 2 (6/4/13) - Page 181

post #2701 of 4960

DavidMahler,

 

This thread has been quite extraordinary, thanks so much for putting in the time and effort to do all of this work and to respond to so many people. I'm a pianist and a lover of classical music as well. I've been content with the HD 800's so far. I plan on buying a pair of the SR-009's sometime this year. After hearing them last week paired with a very good electrostatic amp, the Cavalli Liquid Lightning, I was amazed with their transparency. I'm just curious to know of your thoughts about the SR-009 compared to the Orpheus. I haven't heard the Orpheus, but I have heard great speaker systems, and even better, live orchestras and performers performing great works of music. What are the similarities and differences of the SR-009 and Orpheus?

 

Thanks

 

Jacks

Are you kidding? If I don't get the headphones off by 10:00pm or so, I'll be listening to music until the wee hours of the morning.

I still find it the most relaxing thing I do all day. Thus, why I fall asleep so easilyfrown.gif

Usually, I find it very easy to fall asleep listening to some music through some nice headphones. But, I once fell asleep watching "Game of Thrones" and wearing HD-650's. While they weren't fatiguing at all, the realistic but repetitive menu soundtrack gave me nightmares.

 

It's only the last week or so, after injecting a new Grado 325is, that listening keeps me awake. They are a bit fatiguing and too often sibilant, but the '325 makes guitar-bass-drums (and maybe a Mellotron or synthesizer) rock sound like it was intended to sound.

Thanks Jacks,

 

For classical, you really may find that the SR-009 performs just as well.  It has a bit more analytical qualities, but its not an analytical headphone.  Both are wonderfully transparent.

 

May I suggest waiting for the new Jade. If it's even the slightest improvement over the older Jade it could very well be a top contender for classical music.  The old Jade already is.

I do think I'll be getting the SR-009 this year as my next headphone purchase. I will definitely look into the new Jade.

Why are you guys looking up at their noses? The view is much better elsewhere.
