Hi guys, I've been using a pair of Shure 425's now for a year and a half. I've been generally happy, but now I feel like I want to try something different. When I first picked up the 425s I wasn't an audiophile and couldn't really discern the differences in sound. Now I can more, so I'm looking to upgrade slightly from what I have. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I should look at for my next pair of monitors? Thanks!
Tired of Shure SE425 - what next?

I was in the same boat and looked around a bit. Wasn't convinced the SE535 was worth the upgrade. I ended up ordering the Heir 5.0, which is a bit outside of your budget. While not thoroughly reviewed, the comparisons to the 8a made me think it was the best bet for a universal south of $800 (with the upgraded cable). I also considerd the Sennheisers but decided against as I like the isolation of a closed body.
