How much better do the 80's sound over the Portas? I have heard the 80's, and the sound good (could not hear much if any difference between the 80's and 125's). The 80's are $200 Canadian, Portas $75. Are the Portas close to the 80's? I listen to rock, old country, jazz through a yamaha cd player an old receiver with a headphone out. Also would it be worth it to go up a couple of steps to a grado 325 or senn 580/600? They are around $450 Canadian. If I did step up would my player and amp be enough to power them? Thanks all for your opinions.
