    Just for grins, I did a search on his username and discovered he's posted essentially the same message on a number of audio forums...

    i've been using Sony 7506s and Realistic LV-10s (which are essentially the same as Koss HV/1As)

    Whatever happened to the KOSS pro4AAA or AA's?

    I still have some of those.

    Also I have AKG k140's that were a Christmas gift in 1978. Still use them when necessary.

    I am recently becoming interested in some newer cans for the booth and wonder what others are using.

    A DJ friend swears by the Sony MDR700(?). No other experience with recent headphones of the last 20 years.

    Any Help?

    heh... pro4aa's were my first set... bought 'em while saving up for speakers.
    great bass, great isolation, then heavy and tiring... much later made the
    move to some nice sennheisers... still have those.

    Auditioned tube-amp/stax combo, ... wow... but $$$ at the time.

    Then the ear pads dried out or leaked... they sounded OK for their time, but the newer offerings are far better.

    Owned AKG 240 for 10 years. Listen to them every day at work. No boom, no sizzle, just right. like studio monitors on your head. And not too expensive either.
    Why buy used when you can build your own?

    I owned HV/1a's for years but they fell apart in many ways. Great sound, poor quality.

    Only looosers bought the Koss. The rest of us discriminating folk went for the Superex from Yonkers, NY! Well, a few of iconoclasts did. And I still have mine, complete with a JBL badge on one side.

    (I think the badges came in the JBL cabinet construction kit?)

    the latest Stereophile mag gave a rave recommendation to these

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826402014

    and for listing at $249, thot the $104 at Newegg was outstanding.

    Great PDF about detail, neutral response and spatial presentation in general...

    ...but Stax Omega II headphones in particular as well. It will definitely explain what the fuss over Stax is about. Note that one implication is that headphone listening is neither two channel nor surround in presentation, but something else all together. I find it closer to reality than either.

    I am tempted to post this in General Audio Discussion instead of a headphone thread. It's implications are broad enough. I think it covers these topics better than any speaker article or paper I have ever read.

    You can save it or open it. It was written by a poster at Head-Fi known as Darth Nut.
