    Ultrasone HFI-2400: Should you take the red pill?

    Well, after a few months of being satisfied with my rig, I felt the upgrade itch once again.  Curse you, Head-Fi!  I swear, this place is an addiction. :P The primary genre of music that I listen to is metal, and I absolutely love my Grado SR325is for metal.  However, I also enjoy some...
