    Any alternatives to Grado?

    Heya guys, just searching for headphones that are good substitute for grados (coz an sr80i here would cost as high as 200$) I listen mainly on rock, some techno and soft rock and the mid range is very important for me I also prefer Open headphones and my budget is 150$ thanks in advance!

    Budget Classical Music Headphone/IEM for 100$

    Hey, looking for some portable earphones to compliment my FA-003. The 003 is just way to bulky to travel with (I have... twice) and I'm looking for something relatively cheap. Are the KSC-75 good for classical? They seem like must haves :P   I was also looking at the RE0, RE-ZERO, Image S4...

    Best headphone for DJ cueing in club environments and electronic music production

    I currently own a pair of Alessandro MS-1i headphones and I love them dearly but they are not suiting my new needs from a headphone currently. I need closed cans that I can cue with in club environments as well as produce music in with as neutral of a sound as possible, as well as a good...

    What headphones do you use for travelling?

    Obviously, you can't use bulky and big headphones on the go. What headphones do you prefer when you travel?

    Full-sized Headphones that have Etymotic sound? alessandro ms1i?

    I've had ATH m50s and loved them, but did not enjoy wearing them.    I've had the Vmoda M80s and they were great, but to my ears there was a bit of distortion in certain blues-ey types of music in the mid bass range.   I tried a pair of Sony 7506s and, to my ears, they sounded better...

    Help, £100 ($150) Headphones

    Hi, I'm looking into a new pair of headphones to primarily listen to indie rock and alternative although I listen to all other genres, but rarely. Isolation isn't a problem and neither is sound leakage, I'm looking for over or on ear and a good build quality. Obviously comfort is important but I...

    Have TakStar Pro80 and Looking for the Next Step Up...Got Bored

    Exhibiting tremendous restraint and not just leaping to a pair of 800's, I have slowly moved up the value / SQ chain with 20 pairs of cans. What would be the next good step up from the Pro80's? Closed or Open is fine. I listen to rock, jazz, current Asian pop, classical, prog, kraut, very...

    Grado SR125i vs Alessandro MS1: Grado SR125i sound noticeably better.

    Hi   I would like to report some subjective observations which I think might be of help to some on these boards.   In summary, I am now convinced my Grado SR125i are a noticeable improvement over my pair of Alessandro MS1 (non i). Of course, based on my ears, my music, my equipment.  ...

    Philips Fidelio X1, wow I'm impressed

    I got this headphone for $250 on amazon. I think it is easily worth 2-3 times the price. I like this headphone as much as the Hifiman HE-500 which is $700. The X1 is as beautiful in person as it is in pictures. It has a solid quality feel to it. I’m powering the X1 with the Schiit Magni. I think...

    FS: Alessandro MS1i

    Have a surplus of headphones so I'm getting rid of a few. Barely touched MS1i (Just got them as a temporary pair), doesn't get much head time now that I have the AD900x. Only a few months old but rarely used. Comes with original box and packaging.

    Alessandro MS1

    I have a pair of Alessandro MS1s for sale.  They are in very good condition and sound great.  The standard 1/8 inch jack was starting to short out so I had it reterminated into a 1/4 inch no solder jack.   Grado signature just isn't quite my style but these would be great for rock and metal. ...

    Hi, all. I can't seem to get the /Alessandro bee out of my bonnet even though I've got a feeling that the sound signature won't appeal to me. I simply must know or forever be in torment with every other purchase that isn't Grado/Alessandro. Because of this, I'm trying to spend as little as...
