I have a pair of Sennheiser HD595 headphones, but I am thinking they are too nice for me. I only use them at home because I am afraid of breaking them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown"> So, I was thinking of getting some new phones that would still be nice, but would be a bit more portible. I was thinking of getting a pair of Boss TriPorts. How would the TriPorts compair to my Hd595's?

the triports wouldn't be anywhere near as good as the hd595's If you want a good pair of portable cans take a look at some AKG k81dj's or some Senn HD25's

I will be more then happy to trade you my HD555's for your HD595's. But seriously keep the 595's, they are a great can. Its find that you only use them at home I only use my 555's at home take a pair of Shure E3c's on the road.<br><br>

pick up a pair of IEM for portable use. I have a pair of iems (AL IM716's), but I also use my Grados for portable use too lol, you should see the looks.<br><br>
Oh also check out the Koss KC75's. I was exporting them to people over seas when radioshack had them for 10 bucks. I have a pair and they sound great for the price. I actually might have another pair laying around if you are interested.

Triports will have a better bass response, I've heard both headphones in person from the same source. The clarity and wuality on the 595's will be slightly better though.

the hd595's have excellent bass when amped. I'm guessing you didn't amp yours

I'm talking a real headphone amp, not a reciever/speaker amp<br />

and yes, there are headphones that have better/more bass then the hd595's, but the 595's have very accurate bass. If a song isn't supposed to have lots of bass, the hd595's won't make them have lots of bass (unless you use an EQ) So yeah, the triports probably have more bass, but that doesn't mean it's better. There are lots of qualities of bass not just volume.
