Me = Sony MDR-V700

Although they are aging and showing cracks at the joints I still love them.

I only use them for gaming when I don't want to disturb the misses with my BX5a monitors. Headphones are bad for your ears when not used properly.

In fact, can we add a sticky to the thread?

It's very important that people understand how not to permanently damage their ears, and I think most people overlook this.

I'd be glad to put together the info.

So after a few months with my HD555s, I am not disappointed.

But I just had the chance to try some Grado SR-60s and I should've saved up a bit more money and got those instead.
The HDs are more comfy but the SR-60s just have this oomph behind the audio.. sounds stronger if you know what I mean?
And before anyone says it, no, it's not due to it having more bass.

I think the term "audiophile" is used loosely everywhere, tudJ - the word really is people who have an interest in audio, and unfortunately it has been overgeneralised to people who constantly pursue better gear to enhance that enjoyment. The latter is certainly a respectable part of the former, yet without one the other could not exist.

Well said.

Though, the term Audiophile has always come off to me as the people who might not necessarily have the time or money for the high end equipment, but appreciate what it brings to the table, and all forms of music with the enjoyment it brings.

Though, if you cut the word up into it's two parts (Latin & Greek) it more or less means "I love to hear/listen"

Nova 20's (depending on make) are the same. Mine are from the early 70, which is the updated pair.

I just claimed a set of JVC Victor DX1000's for $650 (with the matching headphone stand) ... if only for evaluation ...

Pray for me.

(What you have to say about this Aura?)

...



...

If they don't suit me ... then I expect to be able to recoup my loss fairly easily ...

(er ... my families companies loss that is since it's on their CC).
