He's saying he likes the bass they have, but would like to have better sound quality in the other areas.

Anyways I'd suggest trying out Denon D2000's if possible, they are in the $200-300 price range.

I found the Senn HD228 not too bad for a closed version, but the sound quality was just not there.
[For bolded] hmm... not really. As for on the go, they could be. It all depends on what the situation and type of settings. They wouldn't be for private listening on the bus. However I've used them and HD600s in libraries or other settings without problem. Minimal bleed. Grados are not comfortable.

The SR60s are almost half the size of the AD700s, and since they are on ear rather than around the ear they might not be as comfy as the 700s, but pretty good for me. Now if you are a bit self conscious of how you look while wearing them, it does kinda make you look like a robot with a couple of antenna sticking up, lol. But its all a matter of taste. If one were looking for a headphone to use at home, and be able to take on the go, instead of getting two separate pair, I would recommend them.

I noticed a terrible thing as I was packing up my 555's.... The end of the silver piece where the size adjustment is has a crack on it . I've never dropped the headphones, mistreated them, slammed them and always took them off using both of my hands

I read up a bit an seen that Senns might cover it, but I removed the pads inside of them for the foam removal mod anyone think they would catch that?

Mine has the same crack over both ears. I've been keeping an eye on them and they haven't gotten bigger.

Let me know how that goes for you. I may be doing the same.

Is there a headphone modding thread in this section, and if there isnt, would someone with the time to keep up with it like to start one. A place to list all the mods we have done to our headphones. With pics of course.

I wish sure would just budget a bit for design. It puts me off buying, even though im led to believe they sound incredible.

Yeah, they look pretty dire. Aesthetics are important!
