Windows 7: Require advice on audiophile/music headphones

What ever you do........don't and I repeat don't get noise cancelling headphones for critical listening. You fly for business or take the bus to work then yes, but for a fledgling sound engineer/music producer.......not so much!

I watched a video review of the AD700, and apparently they're more music and gaming heaphones, didn't provide much bass at all. Looks like it's either the M50s or something from Sennheiser.

Well within the budget and musical and accurate.

I forgot about Grado. What about the SR80i. Do you think that's OK or am I going too far and won't notice the difference?

Likely won't notice the difference. The 60's are heralded as a true audio value. Of course they aren't in the league of the woodies.

Really either would as well be a solid choice....the 60 or 80.

I just read a review on their site. "I can't tell the difference between the SR60i and the SR325i without an AMP." I guess there's my answer. Unless anyone wants me to see something by Sennheiser.

I think it's time to grab that great cd that you know like the back of your hand and listen to it till your sick of it. Then take it to the dealers with these fine products and have a go. Otherwise save the coin and get the Grado's and then save for the AKG after your first or second client buys you services and then break the 701's or 702's in for at least 100-150 hours with low level background music !
