    grado 225

    Are the grado 225's worth even considering purchasing before having a amp? I will be using these for home setup(from pc/ipod/other non uber sources)....was pretty set on 225's until I started to hear that some of the top end grado's dont sound good w/o a amp.

    Best headphones ever

    What would you say are the best headphones ever made, price-no-object. I know its subjective, but if you could have any one pair of headphones to use most of the time, what would it be?

    What koss models use the same "speakers" as the PortaPros?

    What Koss models use the same speaker drivers, or whatever it's called, as the PortaPros? Also, will all these models have identical sound considering they are the same speaker driver?

    Your first headphones?

    Simply, which headphones were the first you ever used? Excluding things like iBuds and the on-ear foam cheapies that come with walkmans, of course.   Mine were the KOSS K/6X Plus. Got them when I was 8, found them at a local garage sale for $5 and made my grandma buy them for me. Didn't...

    Best headphone purchase, worst headphone purchase you have made

    What do you consider to be your best and worst headphone purchases so far? WORST: Sennheiser HD-595 (50 ohm) Also my first "good" headphone purchase (early September of 2005). As a gamer and fan of all kinds of music genres, new to headphones and head-fi, I read the praise these headphones...
