I love this new approach to mid-to-high end audio! Congrats!It´s a shame that people still spend thousands on SLI'ed 8800 ultras but still have shitty speakers to listen to. Pleasure do not necessarily come from FPS... the overall experience is by much enhanced with proper speakers, proper mouse, proper screen.

What is Euraudio PRO600S ???

You did measure with an artificial head, did you?

Using a blocked ear canal?

With proper mic positioning at the entrance to concha?

With several repeat measurements and smoothed the results?

You do know how to interpret in-ear HRTF measurement data properly?

You do understand that a flat frequency response will sound horrible with a proper measurement setup: this is a _headphone_ that should be measured _when worn_ and not a loudspeaker in an anechoic chamber...

If you answered no to any of the above questions, your measurement data and conclusions are completely worthless.

C'mon!!!! What a review is this?

The closed design of the grado makes them more suitable for 'punch' genres... for the "awful, horrible" overcompresed taste of sound.

That last graph comparing levels that way it's just silly! You're not comparing graphic cards!!!
In fact, the SPL deviation in the grado is an awful 23 db (87db@100hz-64db@20khz) compared to 17db (85@400hz-68@20Khz) for the sennheiser. Add to that, the logaritmic deviation power per ERB is way higher on the grado too.
Can we say COlooooration?? Peak????

The 600 just "breathes", reproduces de higher harmonics... Are you uncomfortable with some instrument sounds and the subtleties of the players? Omgg... the harmonics of brass section are meant so SOUND that way!!! people paying real money pay for the detail an realism!!!

I'm a usual reader of yours, but this review lacks the accuracy needed to compare highend audio components.

And yeah... I'm an ex-user of a hd600 and actual user of a hd650. Soundcard: motu 828 mk2... I just use them for final mastering!!!

Why the 600s and not the 650s? Aren't they discontinued anyways?
