i hate to ask this since i am sure it's been gone over before...but the search isn't working and i cant seem to find a good comparison on the net.
anyways i plan on replacing my grados sr60 with shure e2c or ety er6 since they are more portable. i love the grado sound, but i dont consider it too portable since it's so darn goofy to wear in public.
anyways, can someone please give me the pros and cons of each model, along with a comparison of the sound quality? also, how does it compare to the grado sr60?
ER-6 reveals a lot of details. It runs a little bright and the bass does not have a strong presence. The ER-6 is a little hard to drive. Some people have made the claim that a portable amp is required before getting deeper bass.
I have never listened to the E2C, but this is what most people have said about them. They do not deman much power. They have a better bass response, creating a more even sound. However, it does not sound as detailed as the ER-6's.
I know the ER-6 will outperform the SR-60 in almost every way. So will probably the E2c.
If you have a larger budget, look into the E3. Many members here seem to favor the E3 over the E2. Analogously, many people favor the ER-4 over the ER-6, but the price hike is much larger.
