This is meant to be an introduction thread and also a "Looking for help" thread
I cannot decide between two pairs of headphones.
The Grado SR-60i and Sennheiser HD558.
May also be looking for some cheaper Sennheisers.
On-Ear or Over-Ear is not a problem for me.
I would get the Grado SR-60i if I only knew if I would get a good warm sound. I don't really know how to say this. With closed ear cups I would get the feeling I'm in the studio where the music was recorded. But the SR-60is have those S-Cushions. And I'm afraid I wouldn't get the desired sound from them. The only "custom" cushions I could get in my area are the
L-Cushions for 20 €. Will they change anything?
I could also buy those Sennheiser's but I'm more interested in the Grados. I'm mainly looking for headphones which would be great for listening to music and gaming.
Sound leakage is not a problem since I'm going to be using them at home. But I'm also afraid the sound will leak into my Blue Yeti microphone and for example: People on Skype calls will hear everything I'm listening to.
I don't think amplification is necessary since I've got the Blue Yeti with the Volume Knob and it somehow increases the volume even more than my computer does.
