Also have epiphany acoustics E-DAC
Headphones for reference: Alclair reference monitors.

I value a natural, neutral smooth sound.
I like my highs airy and well defined with good extension.
Lows punchy and tight.
Mids clear and slightly forward sometimes.

Transparency and detail are very important, as well as good imaging. I don't find soundstage to be as important as some as long as the sound is not congested, but I can appreciate a large soundstage
Great stuff! Good luck

Lol. Your preference sounds very close to my preference.

Alclair seems to be a ciem that I might be interested in for my next ciem purchase. I think they should be fairly similar to UERM, but with more natural sound. But my next ciem purchase won't be for couple yearsfrown.gif

Does the SE215 even cost more than the Beats? @.@ wasn't even dared to make my friend to pay for my broken ex-headphone xD glad it was barely £45 not something like $200

Lol. He paid me $200, and I spend $99 on SE215 and the rest on something else.

That's a very smart of you to ask for cash instead of a new pair haha

Yup. He was pretty happy that he didn't have to go to a store to buy the beats too! It's a win win. That was the turning point in my life. Getting a SE215 and beginning my journy as an audiophile.

Even if I get the Beats, I will just sell it off xD

That, I am not sure xD Didn't search "Beats" in the Amazon and Ebay for a while! The last time I did was several years ago when I know nothing much about audio xD

*Munching* just got my Grados few days ago and I think I am slowly addicted to brighter sound! The imaging is just awesome... Can't take them off now! Need help! It's like a bucket stuck on my head but this one, in a good way (or is it not? XD )

Lol. Just have multiple headphones with different sound sigs. I go back and forth between warm sound and bright sound all the time.

Lol been here for almost a year now and during my free time (as in my very very bored time xD ) I think of what to buy next in audio! Was thinking of Grado after I got my XBA-4 and now I have it and love it! Planning to buy a DAC/amp combo or possibly another headphone but this time, over ear! XD something completely different from Grado! Forward mids is a must thought! XD *any ideas? At $300~ as I am trying to see what's others opinion as sometime, own opinion is not enough xD *
