I'm new to the audiophile world. You can all thank Namrac for my soon-to-be addiction to expensive audio equipment. He's the devil who sold me the DT770's.

Someone is selling a Headfive on Head-Fi right now for $160. At that price its a steal considering how most go for $190-200.
$160?

I paid $200 for mine and am VERY happy with it. Headfive + DT770 is a very synergistic match. =D

@soloz: checked my 24 Ghosts CD kit that they shipped me (I took the 10 dollar route) and it does indeed come on two CDs.

My RS1's SpANk3D! by my SE530's!
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Just thought some of you owning both IEM's and full sized cans might find this interesting ...

I'm currently wading through about 130 tracks of ambient/drum&bass/dub and otherwise electronica that a certain NY based DJ friend of mine has recently turned me on to.

I started with my Grado RS1's ... things were good ... spatially on point ... overall sonically pleasing ... but the bass just wouldn't reach the impact and depth I was looking for.

Everything sounded a bit thin when listening to my first batch of test tracks from Rhythm and Sound (See Mi Yah Remixes):

...



...

So I traded the RS1's for my (generally mobile only) Shure SE530's.

And after a few seconds of utterly hard hitting high hats, impossibly tight drums and sickeningly dreamy background sweeps .... I realized that the RS1's, though utterly astonishing to me when listening to anything guitar based, just weren't up to delivering quite so hearty goods when moving into the realm of electronica and drum/bass centric of such peices.

This really is the realm of the SE530's in my opinion.

I think music such as this just sounds better if played at a volume that provides real physical impact and such is not possible using the RS1's ... the drums and bass beats just can't reach the same level of SLAM as the SE530's and this makes a huge impact on the final enjoyment of such drum/bass, electronic types of music.

I mean, my spinal chord actually feels like it's vibrating through certain tracks!



Another thing that enhanced the listening enjoyment and that the RS1's didn't (nor never) require, was a slight notch up in the high frequency spectrum.

I'm using ASIO drivers with Media Jukebox and it's EQ is quite nice sounding when transporting to the X-fi (in bit Bit Matched Playback mode):

...



...

That's the setting the SE530's required to really sound their best.

...

Anyway ...

I was just so utterly amazed at my near 24 hour, home listening RS1's being so dethroned with this particular release that I thought I'd describe it a bit.

The RS1's, in turn, utterly destroy the SE530's with classical music and any sort of rock music. No competition ...

But man do the SE530's sound good with electronic/drum/bass music.

Electronica is the Beyer's strong point as well. Now if only I listened to electronica...

I don't like too much pure electronica (house/most dance music) ... but I like other types of more ambient/drum/beat/dub-esque electronic music such as that from Rhythm and Sound, Amon Tobin, Thievery Corporation, etc.

I might have to investigate a pair of Beyers soon ...

I was debating between the SE530 and the Triple.fi 10 pro, I think I'll be happier with the UE if the SE530 has so much bass impact.
