My journey started when my wife broke my cheapish UE700s a couple of months back and a search for a replacement brought me to Headfi. One thing led to another and now I got all this gear. Since reading this particular thread inspired me to buy my gear I'd thought I'd contribute. I didn't think my UE900 sounded veiled in the mid range until I got my HE500s. Now I have on order GR07 bass editions. Hope they are ok.
