The 800 is a classic.

Grado? Which one?

For me? Stellia, Voce or Emps

I wouldn’t buy the HD800 or a Abyss 1266 because of looks LOL. Good Lord they are ugly. The one headphone I bought because of looks but sold because of terrible comfort was the Rad-0.

The RAD-0 is the best sounding planar magnetic headphone that I have heard. BUT, wearing the RAD-0 is ‘Inquisition-esque’ torture…👹😭

I own (or have owned) a number of really beautiful headphones, including the Klipsch HP-3, Audeze LCD-3, HD800, and Beyerdynamic DT1770s, but at the moment I'm really missing my Sendy Aivas. A large part of that is just the joy of handling them; they're so beautiful and built so well it's hard not to fall in love with them.

Pictures really don't do them justice, though.

I've been trying to either sell off some headphones to buy them, or trade for them, but I might end up breaking down and just ordering them...

Was going to bring up the Rad-0 as well. The only headphone that I couldn't tolerate after 30 min or so because of hot spots around my ears and on top of my head. Not sure if the any of the newer produced ones have made minor improvements in comfort though!
