    Hi Everyone,
    My name is Jonathan and I was told this is the place to go to consolt on Buying a specific set of headphones.
    I want a pair which are good for listening to Old Recordings of Classical Music.
    I currently Have the Grado SR225, and Like them a lot. Since I have them for a long time and they are quite worn out, I was thinking of buying a ney pair of headphones.
    So what are the best ones to get specificly for Classical music, and even more specificaly for old recording (40s-60s eusaly)?
    Thanks a lot,

    I would say safely, the following, depending on budget:
    Sennheiser HD650
    Sennheiser HD600
    Beyer DT880
    Hifiman HE-300
    Hifiman HE-400
    AudioTechnica AD900
    For really old recordings, I would probably go HD650 primarily.
    Very best,

    What Would you say about the Audio Technica ATH-AD700?

    A question: I read on a Different thread that the Sennheiser HD 800, While being great for classical music in general, are not good for Old recordings because they are not Versatile. What Does that mean, for Headphones to be versatile?
