    Shure Srh840 vs. Grado SR80i

    These are 2 very different headphones. If you are looking for something very fun and plan to listen to quite a bit of rock I would recommend the Grado's. If you plan to listen to everything else I would take the SRH-840's. But you should probably be looking at the sr-225 instead of the sr-80.

    Which gives a better sound, iPhone 4 or Zune HD?

    I've not heard the Zune HD but the one thing I know is that finding a LOD is almost impossible to find. So if you ever decide to amp your headphones or use an external dac you will be extremely limited with the Zune HD.

    Am I hearing things correctly?

    You could also pick up the Monoprice Premium Hi-Fi DJ headphones. It seems like they are the exact same headphone and they will cost you less.

    Just opened my Senn HD598....Do I really need to break them in???

    The headphones will not sound much different broken in than they do now. You may not like the sound signature. What kinda music are you listening to? What source are you playing through and what is the bitrate?

    Denon d2000, ATH-AD900, HD598?

    Quote: I guess so. Maybe the d2000's are more recessed because I've not found the midrange to be nearly as recessed as some lead you to believe on the d5000's.

    Grado harshness similar to AD700?

    I don't find the ad-700 bright. I also don't find my sr-225i's bright. So there you go.

    Listening to my Sennheiser HD 600 headphones at near maximum volume

    Sounds like you need a headphone amp.

    Quote: Yes 30 watts is more than enough. Make sure that you learn proper soldering techniques because without them you will find yourself in a mess.

    Help me choose between Sennheiser and Audio Technica!

    The ad700's simply lack impact. They cannot push air like other headphones can. You can adjust the equalizer but you won't give them much more impact. Now the ad700's can hit very low bass notes but you won't feel it.

    Stuck between these three. HELP D:

    I believe that Grado's do exceptionally well with metal (as do the majority of grado owners). Personally I would recommend a pair of sr-60 or 80's over the above choices for metal/screamo. If you stick with the above choices I would say go with either the 440's or m50's. I haven't heard the...

    Are you sure about you Shure 440's?

    Quote: It's quite obvious that you put down headphones without ever having put them on your ears. When people do stuff like that they really plague this website with false information.   That being said the HD-25-1 II's are a very forward phone. They are definitely not laid back. They...

    Well I hate to further derail this thread but I have waited almost 2 months now for my modified grados from bila. I hope I get them soon but it seems unlikely. I've been promised a tracking number but never received one.

    I'm looking for a good companion to my Grados and my Mdr-V6's

    Look into the sennheiser line-up if you are looking for something that showcases the midrange. Also if you go with the fostex's you may want to look at the mod thread to truly make them sound their best.

    sennheiser hd202 vs klipsch image one, difference in sound quality?

    I don't know how the 202's sound but I doubt they have the same sound as the image one's. The Sennheiser house sound is very different from Klipch's house sound. The image ones are not a bad set of headphones. The bass has a reasonable mid-bass hump (which will make your kick drums sound...

    Headphones for under 200

    Quote:       I believe you can test the 7506's at guitar center.  They are the same as the v6. The reason that they aren't a 'classic' on head-fi is that they can sometimes have harsh highs (at least to some ears). Also they are not bass monsters out of the box. You may be able to eq...

    I'm looking for "musical" headphones: srh840/tma-1/ath-m50/hd-25. Need input!

    I think you may like the hd-25-1 II. The treble can be a bit hot on some songs but I usually find it to be just right. Also there is a slight mid bass hump which will make the bass drum sound exactly like you want. The main concern some may have is the soundstage and comfort over long periods of...

    Why do people like Grados so much?

    I love my grado's because they are fun. I also have a pair of d5000's and I find myself picking up my pair of sr-225i's to listen to almost all rock. That said if I want to listen to something with a little more sub bass or something that has a soundstage I will throw on my d5000's. Simply put...
