    Happy user of SR60 for 6 months-upgrade?

    Hey all, i've been extremely happy with my Grado SR60 for the longest time; i really have not heard a better-sounding headphone. I really don't need an upgrade, but i'm just wondering how it would be to go up to the SR125 or SR225. I'm using it pretty much exclusively with my Rio Karma, which i...

    Describing Headphone Attributes

    As a newbie here (sort of) i am sometimes stumped as to how to interpret headphones' sound descriptions, as well as describing them accurately myself. I'd like to have these terms clear: Detail is what? What do you hear when you hear "detail?:" Highs are: Mids are: Bass is: A...

    Needed and Wanted: Complete overhaul of entire music collection.

    You may be following my venture into the world of audiophilia with my Etymotic ER-6s, or not, but i'm running into a few problems. I have a problem: I can either return the ER-6s and keep listening to my bad recordings through some other headphones, or keep the ER-6 and begin widening my musical...

    Any head-fiers listen to System of a Down?

    I've discovered my official hyper/angry mood music!! Blazing fast rock tempo, hard guitars, and the lead singer's (yeller's ) voice fits the rest of the sound nicely. The only tracks I currently have on my Karma are: -Prison Song -Innervision -Jet Pilot -A.T.W.A. i like the first 2...

    Anyone have The Strokes - Room on Fire CD?

    I'm wondering if this recording is truly the way it was recorded. On my karma right now (and anywere else for that matter) "Reptilia" sounds like it was recorded in old times... the voices are a bit distorted, and the drums + guitar are as well... I love the song; it almost seems as if it sounds...

    2 Questions: Labtecs and a comparison

    How many of you out there have heard the Labtec 840 Elites? I think they're discontinued now; i got the last batch i think. For $15, they sound "meh" to mine ears; i'm upgrading to the ER-6s soon. Question is: How will the ER-6s sound in comparison to the Labtecs? i'm thinking much better...

    Depth of Ety's in the canal?

    How far do the ER-6s go into the canal in comparison to the EX-71s? I read some reviews on epinions.com and some of them stated that they went veeeeery far into the canal. Since i haven't worn my ex71s for a while; primarily listening to my labtecs (circumaural), I fear i won't find the ER-6s...
