Aviator, MDR V6, or M50 - Page 2

post #16 of 22
Thread Starter 
I like Grados, but I just think of them as leak machines. I know I said leakage wasn't an issue, but a little isn't, but I always correlate Grado with open cans. Maybe, I'm wrong and only thinking specific products and not others.

I just have never associated skull candy with anything decent and I was shocked at how good those aviators sounded. The comfort was fantastic too, but that cord looks like a potential problem.

The V6 were great for me back in the day. Just kind of boring. Still a classic all round great set, but I'm wanting something different.

These Exodus just look so damn good. I was blown away with the look of the whole line, really. The Stir It Ups have the detachable cord, which I am a huge fan of. And the wood accents? The Exodus supposedly sound great but can be uncomfortable.

Dang. I need lots of $$$$

if you gotta use the headphone for listening at home, i think grado is good but if you want to carry them with you buy aviator. you wont regret it.

If you go for the Aviator, make sure you get the newest version (comes in a cardboard box instead of plastic) as it has a detachable cable.

According to reviews I've seen, the Stir It Up's basically are missing high frequency responses, so they probably aren't too good.

Oh, so the new aviators have a detachable cable? I looked at the displays and didn't see that. Awesome. I want that in whatever I get.

I have a polar opposite opinion. When I had the Aviators, to my ears, they sounded like a closed Grado. Thought they were great for rock. YMMV.

Good thing about the Aviators is that they can scale nicely with better equipment.

have you heard other cans in the price range? If you have and like the aviators go for it there is also the akg mk2 studio in that range just thought I would mention them but I personally liked the already mentioned kns 8400 the akg do need amped though I am not a fan of portable amps but the e11 gives them what they need I don't think the e6 quite does it though
