What is a b&h center?

I would imagine that heavy metal might sound the best on the MDR 1r because of its agressive nature. It's kind of a toss up between the two. Get the 1r for comfort, ws99 for sound. Grado would be perfect (sr325i) but they're open so that's a no go.

Did you get to listen to the other song yet?

Woops when I said I couldn't hear the song, it was because the videos don't work on portables. I don't have a pc around me right now so I can't hear the song.

Oh haha. That's okay. I'm gonna see if I can find a place to try out the sonys. I think I m probbly gonna go with them.

Nice choice. They look wonderful, and people imo just don't understand the importance of the aesthetics of headphones. No, comfort, build, sound are more important but I simply can't buy a headphone if it looks ugly. Only thing is, mdr 1r actually sounds great for the price point!

Yeah I really wanted to make sure i was buying the right ones. I thought i was sure i wanted the mdr 1r until I found out about the vents on it that leak some sound. That's when I discovered the amperior!

Nah, the 1r doesn't leak. It has a vent its no biggy. It helps out the sound. I'll be getting the new kef m500 soon so I'll compare it to my 1r and ath ws99.

Sweet! Let me know how it fairs with rock and metal. By the way, do you know much about the amperiors?

Has anyone recommended the D600s or the Pro 900 from Ultrasone?  Really good cans both of them.
