As a huge Grado Labs fan, I was eageraly awaiting Grado's release of iPod-like cans. Unfortunately, the reviews have been far less than positive about them
Grado make very high end stuff, as does Stax, Beyer Dynamic and AKG.Looks like there are certain names/models that keep popping up such as the Grados. I was at BB yesterday evening and I had no clue as to which was better.
Not from what I can tell. A lot of Sony, Skull-something, and Bose products.BTW - Is BB selling the iGrado series?
For me, the greatest in-ear equal to expensive Grado headphones are the Etymotic earbuds, such as the ER6i. I LOVE the flat frequency, clean, crisp reproduction. They are AWESOME!Senn's and Grado's are two of the top names in headphones but they sound different from each other...and the PX100's are different in style to the iGrado or SR60's so you really need to try and find a place to demo them if at all possible. Both of these options are open though so sound will not be trapped in...or out so everyone around you will hear what you're hearing. If you want to block outside noise and or limit how much other people will hear you're going to need to look at in ear monitors like Shure 0.5's (very nice sound but awkward to use) or a closed design. Sennheiser has some decent sounding closed design's that aren't too expensive like the HD201's.
