Quick history: Have Grado RS-1 & RA-1, which I feel have an excellent balance of bass, mids, highs. Purchased MG Head, Senn HD-600 & took the advice of many of you and added Cardas cable. Question is - how can I expect the sound of these to change as time goes on? Right now the base of the Senn's is a bit to heavy, especially at higher volumes, and the highs don't have quite as much "flavor" as the Grado's. I tried this combo because the Grado's sound is to forward for my taste, and they just aren't comfortable enough for extended listening.

Welcome to Head-Fi Kentamcolin, sorry about the wallet!!!

Do a search under the section labeled Cables, tweaks, etc. Many people have posted their opinions about the Senns before and after the cable replacement. Lots of reading, but totally worthwhile!!!

the senns/cardas combo will "settle down" nicely with some burn in, the highs and lows seem to even out quite a bit, the sound becomes warmer, imo...

HD600+cardas has a similar flavor to the grado HP-1s. A little more detail, a little less bass, but the ambience and naturalness are equal.
