My 595's are really great for video soundtracks while watching streaming video...Netflix, Amazon Prime. Their ability to bring all the excitement out of action movies is excellent.
Since starting this thread...I still feel my AT AD-700's are still my value kings...when considering value, I think low cost and high performance, regardless (almost put irregardless in there..which is not a word) of a way more expensive product being "billed" as high value WITHIN it's price category. I'm thinking a couple a hundred $ U.S. and what can you buy/hear through, them. I think mods would be another category.
The AD-700's from Audio Technica are easy to listen to and bring a fairly detailed presentation to about the widest soundstage I've encountered in headphone listening. It's a breathtaking soundstage where it's not just confined to "in-head" sound. Maybe if they weren't purple and gold.....
Good stuff on this thread, thanks....J
I found this site/thread very useful, don't want to link off site so I'll just tell you where it's at. head-fi>forums>help in getting started>introductions, help and recommendations. There are two threads there that may be of interest, 'shootout:100+ portable headphones compared' and 'battle of the flagships, 50 headphones compared'.
Between these two forums I find a vast amount of knowledge on cans. FedEx just delivered the Shiit modi and ups should be delivering the aune x1 next week.
Wife's not going to be happy.
