Also, what would be my best choice y'reckon? Bearing in mind that i have no proper dedicated amp, just a cd seperates system which i run my pc sound through..


edit - woooah, HD580's are 3 times the price on the two websites i could find them being sold on.. Don't think i'll be buying them.

Also, thinking of getting my 555's from Play.com with free delivery etc. Any Brits know of anywhere cheaper to get a-hold of some??


edit 2 - UK peoples, would anybody be interested in a pair of SR60's with a slight melt on the headband, if i were to consider selling them??
Forgot about the completely outrageous deals UK'ers get on HD555s... somewhere was selling them for like 27 pounds... in the states, HD555s are about $100-110 new, and you can find HD580s for roughly $150 (mine were $154 shipped), and the difference in quality is very much worth the extra $40.

The HD555 will have a more spacious, but reserved sound. It won't be as in your face, and there's more bass, although if the SR60's like the SR80, it won't be quite as punchy. It's fairly even and natural sounding, if a bit airy, but coming from Grados, that shouldn't be an issue.

The only thing you might not like is how laid back they are in comparison. They are extremely relaxed, the grados are extremely energetic.

Here is the site selling them for 27 pounds, don't know how trustworthy/reliable they are though.

In my opinion, sure. They're a darned good pair of earphones for the price of admission.

Everyone from the Mid-West - READ THIS.

It's not a sure thing yet, but it's pretty safe to say that it's going to happen. Stacy, whom I've might previously, is a great girl who is going to serve as a wonderful hostess for this gathering. If you are at all interested, set aside August 2nd to make this trip.

Joel - it's less than a month's notice, but maybe you have contacts you can utilize in Chicago? If it is at all possible for you to make it to this meet, lmk.

Sounds like I need to call my cousin Ron and tell him I'm coming to visit. He just had a little girl so I could go under the pretense that I'm visiting my new cousin .

I can see it now:

My cousin and his wife: "We're so happy you could come visit, Julian. Come see your new cousin... Julian? ... Julian?

Me:*Surreptitiously making my way out the front door to avoid the somewhat guilty feeling of being caught going to meet up with total strangers in lieu of spending time with my cousin and his family*

Sometimes its just important to realize what your priorities are .

Just go to your cousins first, then get "lost" on the way home.
