With my new Headphone Amp now settling in nicely and while enjoying the tunes made via my trusty (but elderly) Grado’s I’ve started the task of looking at there replacement, since I really feel the Gilmore Lite Mk2 deserves a better.
While phones further up the Grado range are an obvious first look I’ve also been viewing the following and was wondering what others thought, either from what you have read, been told by a friend or better still experienced yourself.
1 - Audio-Technica ATH-70X
2 - Audeze LCD-1
3 - Sennheiser HD660 S
I’m limiting price to around the £350 mark and although I appreciate headphones can be very personal, they do nevertheless appear to gel universal opinions. From those listed above you will probably guess I’m going for a fairly flat frequency response that will have slightly more bass than my current Grado’s are capable of supplying but without the razor sharp treble that some phones seem to give.
Any comments/views will be greatly appreciated, even the mention of alternatives to consider that you may be using yourself.
