But there're a few things i dun like about the MS2. Its treble is a little too harsh for me. I listen to it for about 15mins, then i took it off. And the headband was a bit too loose and coupled with the bowl pads, its a little bass light. But maybe its the audition pair. My own pair, i can bend the headband to fit my head and use other foam pads.

I was quoted $520 for MS2 by 2 young guys (Wilson not around) and $420 for HD600. Dilemma! Common sense says HD600 but i'll need a beefy amp and cable upgrades. But i've spent a lot this month. I'll have to get rid of some stuff like MS1 before buying. Too much clutter already.

i do agree its a little bass light but the treble was ok for me.. the onli problem i had with the MS2 was its weight. wilson quoted me around 500 for MS2 too.. but he sae got a free amp

Oh ya for grados, esp metal ones, you need some hair to cushion the skull. If botak, i think will be very pain. Can try a Beyer headband cover. Search for it at SGHP forums.

BTW, what free amp?

I think can la. I also dun need it for a MS1 cos its light enough. Only sometimes i felt pain but not often at all. For MS2, i think its quite essential.

MS2 is very nice.

With the exception of the soundstage and imaging of cans that can be attained by rivalling headphones of similar price, MS2 is very fun sounding

Let's jiggle! *dances*
