I like this thread already. HD595 for open and ATH-900 for closed. My choice as well. Eventhough the pics are for educational purposes.

The cables alone as extremely cheap/low quality, and will degrade the audio quality substantially. Due to the Front Audio Bays cables being unshielded, they're open to interference as well as the front audio jacks. Your best bet is to run audio DIRECTLY from the sound card/sound jack in the back of your pc. Cable doesn't fit that long? Buy an extension cable. Switch between speakers and headphones? We'll discuss that at a later point and time.
I have a logitech z-4 speaker system connected directly to the onboard soundcard of the mobo. Now currently my headphones are connected to the cases front panel, but would it e better to connect them to the power/volume/bass controller that came with the logitech z-4's ?

Thanx

Neither is the best, on my second PC i reach around and unplug the speakers then plug in my headphones but if thats to hard then i guess it doesnt really matter...

I Would probably use the jack on you speakers becasue its easier amd i presume you can then control the volume that way too

I've given extended auditions or have owned many of the lower end cans on the list [ATH's, HD's,DT770s and Denons, such as D2000, or the HD580's, but nothing really over the 200 price range]. One thing I haven't been able to audition is Grados/Alessandros. One thing that makes me not want to sample them of buy them is how everyone speaks of their signature sound. I'm all about organic, warm, deep, extended tones, bass, I love TONS of bass, shaking down my spine. I don't care much for mids, or highs, and I hear nothing but things about how forward the Grados are.

If I could find someone to let me sample them I would, but only 1 OCNer has some Grados, the SR225's and I'm actually going to his house in about 3 weeks to sample them! [He lives about 10 minutes from me] Then were going to a store that carries only high end grados, like the RS series!
