Grado SR80i vs. Audio-Technica ATH-AD700

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

What do you think? Which one is better? I'm mostly listening metal genres (trash death black etc.) and I want to use it with my phone but someday I'll buy sth from cowon. You can give me other suggestions but unfortunately i don't have big budgetfrown.gif. And what do you thing about Audio Technica ATHM50?

The M50 is one of the most overrated 'phones here on Head-Fi. Get the Grado. They should suit your preferences.

Heya,


AudioTechnica A700X

Ultrasone HFI 780

AKG K167

 

The Grado is great, but it's on-ear, which is a comfort issue--you will love or hate that, so that's up to you. The sound is excellent, but comfort is the big hurdle.

The M50 is over-rated and really just an average headphone with a price tag that doesn't match it anymore (it should be a $60~80 phone tops, brand new).

 

Very best,
