About 2 months ago i purchased a set of Grado SR 60's and initially liked them but after the burn in i absolutely couldn't listen to them because they are just too bright and harsh. I in turn bought a set of Denon AH-D1001 and was initially thrilled with them; it seems after the burn in with them they are now somewhat bright although not as bad as the Grado's. The kicker here is I find myself being able to listen to my old and cheap Sennheiser PC-150's that i've had forever without that type of complaint. Unfortunately there is no where one can go and sample ALL cans in person. Is what I'm experiencing common for Senns? Or am i just learning my own sound preferences? I travel frequently and prefer closed over IEM. I took the Grado's on a flight and the person next to me had me stop using them as to the design. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
