Hey guys, I have some heavily modded Grado SR-225s and the wonderful HE-500 cans. I am thinking about selling the Grado's to get some closed cans for those times when I want to listen to music in bed while my wife sleeps. Top price is $300 used, but would prefer something in the $200 price range. I love the HE-500 sound as it is very balanced. I listen to every style of music. Some other sound references, HD800s are too bright for me, I like the HD700 and HD600. LCD-2 Is also very nice. A flat frequency response is more important than soundstage or imaging. It doesn't need to isolate a ton, but it would be nice to be able to lay next to my wife and listen at a normal volume (70db) without bothering her.
Thanks for the tips
Edit: Oh, the HE-400 are too dark and I thought the HD650's where slightly too dark as well.
