The more I listen to quality headphones, the harder it is for me to listen to sub-par headphones. I was using my eggos at work, but I got sick of listening to them with their lack of bass and harsh highs. So I've been taking my AT's to work, but I forgot them there and now all I have is my eggos for the night
Now that I'm listening to them on my home setup, I notice their faults even more. Man, three months ago I wouldn't have had a problem. Now look what you've done to me

i am probably going to give my girlfriend my eggos soon as she thinks they are the greatest headphones she has ever heard. She thought the near $100 price tag was insane though... Good thing I havent told her about my new SR225's and amp yet.

SR225's + RA1 at home & iPod + ER4/SR60 at work and I'm a happy camper.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'll never sell those SR60's. I'm continually impressed with them. Sure they're not as balanced or as full sounding as the SR225's, but they still hold their own.

Totally, I agree. See, the key is having good "crappy" cans. Ditch those eggos!

In a way, the best headphones I have ever owned were my Sennheiser HD400s, purchased in January 1980. I had no complaints, they sounded just great since I did not know of anything better. If only I could be in that innocent state of mind again.


Regards,

L.
