My measly 4 posts? I just haven't had much to say about 'phones. I like my HD600s a lot, better than the HD650s and the unnatural-sounding HD800s. Not too crazy about my AKG K701s (Wes Phillips - you owe me $400!). Not impressed with the Grado line although I get a kick out of my little sugary SR60s. Tempted by the HIFi Man phones at a CES audition. Never heard the Audezes or the Stax 009. Spent a lot of time designing my 7119 tube headphone amp. Would like to build an amp based on the fabled Peerless TL-404 autoformers some day. That's pretty much my headphone life.
I get more thrills and chills out of my Apogee speakers. Interestingly the Divas and HD600s sound about as close as a speaker-to-headphone comparison ever has in my experience. That's a good thing with these two devices. The speakers are much more visceral and involving, and have a completely more expansive spatial presentation, as expected, but the tone colors and balance between the two devices are similar.
