, Def Leppard, AC/DC, Celine Dion, Katie Melua. Budget for HP's, AMP, Dac under 800$. What about grado ?
Your taste in music is very close to mine....I believe you are on the right track in thinking Grado.
Please don't be scared away be all of the fatigue talk...try them for yourself...then you make the decision.
I did and never looked back....once you hear Angus Young's and Joe Perry's guitar riffs.....you may just be in love!
Try an entry level Grado if you must an SR60i or SR80i....both under $100....
I was expecting my 325i's to be so damn bright and fatiguing when I got them, and while I did find them alittle bright at first...burn in took care of a lot of that.
I swear they sounded better and better everytime I listened to them.
They are straight forward, in your face no nonsense cans, that put you front row and center stage. Prat is off the hook....they are just FUN cans.
For me personally, when I put on my Grados and Rock n Roll....I just smile and get lost in the music.
I am so glad people here recommended them to me for rock music.....I have now owned 3 pair....the SR60i.....325i.....RS1i......loved each and everyone of them, including the SR60i.
Good luck with whatever you decide to do.....Rock on!
