    Grado SR325is vs Ultrasone HFI 2400

    Sorry i couldnt get back to you sooner, any of the smaller SS amps will be fine, fiio portables, E7,E17 and then the E9 is also perfect, but if your source is ok, they dont really ''need' an amp, but they do benefit.

    Grado SR325is vs Ultrasone HFI 2400

    For 180, get the ULTRASONEs, b they aren't too bright, but they are smooth and voluptuous(I adore them). other than price, maybe the SR325 if you want ''FUN''

    Beats Are Magical! And Other Nearly-Criminal Marketing Schemes

    The beats prove that we simply live in a consumer society, where advertising can push a product to insane popularity, even if the product is inadequate for the price.

    Best headphone when going to bed.

    Looking foward for my first good headphone

    In my opinion, yes. I like that it has a DAC and can be used in combination with the E9 down the line, and the display is sweet too. I think ALOT of people like that E11 though, depends where you use it and what your source is...

    Best headphones in the $100-$150 range?

    Ok, I do like shure, but mostly for their IEMs, I cant say I'm so SHURE about the  SRH840, i'd still go for the ultrasones, from the little  SRH840 demo ive had, i feel the ultrasones are better all rounders.

    electronic headphones?!

    I suppose the 900s are bright, but I wouldn't worry about them being harsh.

    Best headphones in the $100-$150 range?

    For metal, the senns are OK, but I think they pale in comparison tot he ultrasone 780s (or 580 & 680), considering how close the price is if you find the right deal...   Double bass sounds lethal on the HI-FI 780s

    electronic headphones?!

    I would recommend the Ultrasone pro 900, i had a pair, and listen to alot of sold school house and trance, they sounded fantastic, I had no issue what so ever with the mids, i prefer them to the denon, the sennheisers are out of the question in my opinion for you.

    Finding an Earbud, inear, IEM sound like XBA 1 ( <100&) ?

    I have both the SE215 and XBA-2, I ony put down $110 for the sony, and to be honest I think they sound like an $80 set of IEMs, the mids are very weak and boring, vocals seem to fade in and out and the treble is very dull, yet harsh, and as for the bass... it is very clean, but nothing special...
