    New Shure SE215 - First Impressions

    I am really considering getting my gf these so she leaves my UM1s alone and i was wondering has anyone gone running with them? They seem to fit everything else she likes in IEMs with the punchy bass and non fatiguing  highs but she does want to be able to work out and run with them. Thanks for...

    Announcing HeadRoom's All-New Website

    Great looking site. Like it better than the last. Just a heads up on your "top noise blocking headphones" the grado gs-1000i are on the list. Not sure if they're meant to be because of low volume listening but they definately do not block noise. Thanks for all the hard work on the new site. Hope...

    Head-Fi / Audiophile Clichés

    If burn-in threads count then I think all of the bose and dr dre ones should to. i swear put either of those in your thread title and it will get pages of hits because everyone in here will talk about how bad they are.

    Tough Question

    I would suggest the IEM route as well. Can't beat the isolation and no batteries are required. And as a student they are extremely easy to take care of and easy to use. They can be thrown in your pocket when you need to go and study without having to worry about a big carrying case. Anyway good...

    New hybrid amp by Little Dot, I+

    Just got this amp in last week and I am more than happy so far. Just using the stock tubes and op amp for now until I can save some more money. They really do compliment the grados nicely. I think the nicest part has to be that the sr-80s highs aren't fatiguing any more. Also David is stellar to...

    I love hip-hop and I love hearing my 2 Alpines bump in my SUV

    Have you considered saving a little more and maybe getting beats by dr. dre. Their bass might be more up your alley since they are geared for rap

    Went out the other weekend and caught a 33", 12lbs redfish. Sadly had to throw it back because it was oversized.

    Best open headphone for rock.

    I'd say the Grados since you just want the heaphone for that genre. You seem to be set for other genres so the grado 225s for around $200, $150 easy used is a good deal.

    Most Universally Praised Headphones on Head-Fi?

    Since a price point wasn't established, I'd say the px-100 and the portapros are almost always liked as cheap entry level and portable headphones. Highly recommended on head-fi

    Is the "virtual haircut" an example of soundstage?

    This sounds good with headphones but I think my IEMs sound better

    Best open headphones under 50?

    a pair of used grado sr-60 can be found at that price and there are lots of mods to do to grados that really aren't that hard to do. I think amazon has used ones close to your price range too.

    Ipod classic with amp?

    I'd work on your music collection first. As said by Defective, cds to a lossless format are an easy way to get good music. The reason I say fix your music first is because as your source, amps, and headphones get better you will be able to tell more and more how bad compressed audio sounds...

    Grado and Sennheiser factory view

    I agree with haloxt. Fraseyboys's pictures should be in the original post. It clearly shows that bad photos were chosen by the OP to make grado look bad. Everyone should look at those pictures before commenting.
