I, for one, feel what powertrip said has been needed to be said for a while.

I haven't been around the forums a lot lately so I've been missing out on a lot of stuff that happens. I agree with both of you that soloz has done countless testings but I'm just giving Bear the benefit of the doubt. If I recall correctly, he does sell AT headphones. In the back of my mind, I have a feeling he might be on to something. I know that I could be wrong. I'm not taking any sides or saying who is right and who is wrong, I'm just expressing my opinion on the matter.

Audio never fails to highlight its subjective properties.

Soloz feels one way, DJ feels another. Call it bias/loyalty/what have you, I think we can all agree that both of these guys are part of the building blocks of this forum and are free to express whatever opinions they wish.

DJ has consistently recommended Audio Technica since I've been here, and the members who take his advice always seem extremely satisfied with their entry into audiophile-grade headphones.

i still think you haven't paired ATH cans with the right amp to perform mutual synergy, and perhaps you should try tweaking your own cables to suit you best...

but then again.... you already in love with sennheiser too much....
I've listened to some W series and a SinglePower PPX3 SLAM amp. I still preferred my HD580's. It was some time ago so I can't remember all the details, but on the discs I brought along to listen to I felt my Senns sounded better.

I've also listened to a lot of different headphones at other meets... too many to name (or remember... lol)


It's not that I love Senn too much, it's just that I feel they make some of the best cans for all-around listening. My next favorite would be AKG's then Grado, then Beyer, then ATH.

Guys, as Chipp has said, headphones are preference. There is no yes or no answer in headphones. If Soloz think that ATHs have too much high end, then that's how he hears it, and it's true. If you think ATHs are the greatest thing to happen to mandkind, that is how you hear it, and it's equally true for you. As for me, I have listened to jazz and classical on my A900s, and it just doesn't feel right. They are too bass heavy, and they just don't feel airy enough. The closed design is great for gaming and some music, but I want my jazz and classical to just kind of wash over my ears, and the A900s are a little too up front and direct sounding for me. And the Grados have that nice open, airy feel, but they are also very up front with their sound, which is great for rock, but not what I'm looking for for classical or jazz.

And about Solz' cables, you do know he makes all of his own cables from some of the highest quality materials, right? He knows what he likes, and he knows how to make it sound like he wants it. Don't attack him just because his opinion doesn't match yours.

as for classical... stick to ATH.

read dude read!
i never said ATH's good for jazz.... READ!
and i never attacked soloz2 for anything.......

i'm just stating that for each usage there are cans that are specialized in.
you cannot have it all in one brand or type of cans.

and for each cans andsetup one person need to have their own specialized setups including amp and cables, power supply, power cable and power strip.....

but i know for sure ATH has the widest soundstage between cans... now that is a common knowledge.

you go and try, see if you can find something better at classical, if you can find one, then stick with it.

if you don't like what i have suggested then don't listen to it.

so much for giving heads up......
if this is what i get from sharing my experience..... i'm out....
