Writing that post there was a period of like 5 minutes where I was just sitting here in front of the computer just staring at the screen because I couldn't remember the name of the band and kept wanting to call them Big Killers until it finally came to me

Wait are you not getting the Grados anymore?!

i'm going to get cans for in the house, maybe travel too.

one of my BiL's is talking up: audio-technica ath-m50x, Sennheiser had 280 pros

he called the grado labs sr60x a third party sennheiser.

Hey I love the Audio Technica M50xs, they are my go-to use-out-in-the-world headphones. I have both the regular version and the second edition of the Bluetooth model, which are both great. But I didn't recommend them because we had been talking about price points and those are all over $130 usually.

Also, they are EXTREMELY different from the Grados. The Grados cans are open-back and they have a "spacious" sound that gives a lot of room to the sound, like you're sitting at a show with the band in front of you (I believe it was my comment about listening to the new Big Thief album that spawned this whole conversation). The Audio Technicas aren't just closed back, they're especially bassy! Not in a bad, Beats kind of way, but the bass is certainly more prominent than in the average set of cans.

i would love to be sitting at a show in my living room.

I said spacious sound that gives room to the sound, that's awful. I'm sorry everyone, I'm very tired
