Hello guys! I have a quick question.
I have listened to the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Premium and the Grado Sr 80i. Even though the DT 880 is sometimes 2 or 3 times more expensive (depending on location) i find myself liking the Grado more only because of it's more "natural" sound. IMO the DT880 has a very "metallic" sound even if it's more balanced across the spectrum.
Is the natural sound a characteristic of wooden headphones as opposed to plastic/metallic ones? Or is it just the driver that makes the most difference?
I'm asking this because, even in games, where bass is more important for immersion, i like the grado better (albeit with a bit of EQ) mostly because the sounds are so natural!
