    Vocals seem louder on my left ear

    Quote:   What test did you have done? The hearing in my left ear is usually better than my right, I presumed it was from using the telephone on my right for long periods at work.

    Expensive headphones really worth it?

    Isn't there a HiFi shop you could go in and try some different phones?   Even if they don't have that particular model at least it will give you an idea of the playing ground.   I 've been disapointed buying blind myself, wouldn't want it to happen to you.

    UK Meet (UPDATED!) - Saturday November 7th 2009

    Hello everybody. I would love to come along if there are still places available. I work in the centre of Manchester, so it's no problem if people want me to check out the hotels/parking spaces available near the venue. Also if Pedalhead needs any assistance organising and setting up I would...

    MS-1 pads?

    I think if you order direct from Grado you can request the bowl pads instead at no extra cost. Extra comfy pads are cheaper than bowls on the internet, so if you can get the bowls for free I would recommend that. I've not heard the MS1, but on the SR225 the bowls take a little getting used to...

    Which full size Sennheiser for movies unamped?

    As some other posters have said, I think HD555 would do the trick. I didn't like them that much for music but they made an excellent choice for movies. They have excellent sound stage which means the movie doesn't feel "closed in", and their soft sound signature means that listening for a...

    Television - Marquee Moon (Do you like the remaster?)

    I've heard the remaster but not the original CD. I agree I didn't like the sound, the volume seemed 'boosted' in some places (like the introduction to Venus). This is compared to the vinyl mind.

    Grado SR225s too bright...what next?

    I think you should try the flat pads on the SR225, these make the sound warmer with more body. Cheaper than a new headphone, and you can always sell them on if you still don't like the sound. I think you should stick with the SR225 a little longer, it's a really good headphone.

    david bowie "earthling" worth a re-listen

    Hated most of it, but Dead Man Walking, Little Wonder and Seven Years in Tibet were good songs. Not much of it could really be described as jungle, more industrial heavy rock. I far prefer it's predecessor, Outside.
