"this site contains malware" OMG
Google is facked up right now. They are falsely detecting every site linked from Techspy as being an attack site.
The problem is this link http://www.techspy.com/news... which is an intermediary between our site and the actual article's site. Most likely it's flagged because of a third party advertiser displaying malware in the past or one of the sites it links to has malware. Trying to get it sorted ou as soon as possible.
I have the AKG 550s, perfect for me. :)
Are the Audio Technica ATH-M50x or Sony MDR1A a step up from my Denon AH-D2000?
No, I would look at the NAD HP50 if you want something a little more even sounding, or the V-Moda M100's if you want a comparable amount of bass. Even then, though, the D2000's stand up pretty damn well. I still love those things. You'd have to go up into the next bracket to get a really good "step up" in quality, and at that point you're going to have to start looking at amps because they start getting pretty inefficient.
You mean like the Sennheiser HD800 :o Wouldn't the Denon AH-D600 be a step up model? Seriously though, how about the Sony MDRZ7's? There $700 dollar headphones and Sony's reference headphone! Those got to be better for sure?
I like that the Sennheiser HD800's are there, but no Grado? They're well known for catering primarily to the audiophile market.
IMO. Sennheiser HD800 Sennheiser HD650 Sennheiser HD598 Shure SRH-940 Audio Technica ATH-M50 Sony MDR-7506 AKG K701 Beyerdynamic DT880 Honorable Mention: Paradigm H15 (Passives) Awesome portable headphones. @darkwalker: Grados are somewhat of a niche. Alot of people do not like the brightness.
