I've had the Grado SR60 (not "i") for years and loved the sound. They broke.
Repair costs $80, and they will install SR60i drivers for one reason or another.
So I'm looking to see what options will give me the best value in the $80 region, a repair or another set of headphones.
What I like:
Open 'airy' sound.
I like the type of sound the SR60 and Koss KSC-35 have. To my ears the SR60 is better than the KSC-35, but perhaps these two headphones give you an idea of the sound type I like.
Hopefully a little more bass than the SR60.
Hopefully a little more comfortable to wear than the SR60.
I borrowed a pair of Audio-Technica AD700's - they are more comfortable than the SR60 but I prefer the SR60 sound - the AD700 sounds like there is a bit of a 'veil', and I don't like the 'veil' factor at all. Perhaps that gives you more of an idea what to recommend.
I can get a second hand pair of SR125 (not "i") for $135, I've never heard them before. The comfort factor would not be improved, but do you think I'd prefer their sound to the SR60 and SR60i?
And lastly, SR125 vs SR125i brief verdict?
