Thanks brains for your insightful contribution (Say - 130 posts already)
And please do take the people that says you can not mix with closed phones with a grain of salt or three, they most likely haven’t tried these puppies
Just in case anyone thinks it was me who said that - what I actually said was
You can’t get high fidelity with closed headphones, no matter how much you pay.
…which I stand by! You can do a rough mix with any decent headphones, but for plain non-critical listening openness and fidelity, Open vs Closed - no contest! If I couldn’t get Grados, Beyer would certainly be my second choice, I had a pair of semi open Beyers for years (can’t remember the model number) and I was extremely p*ssed off when they died. Grados came to my rescue. I think the Sound on Sound review that omitted Grado rendered the whole exercise pointless. It’s like leaving BMW out of a What Car? review of quality cars!
