Thanks again MR.
Although I listen to just about everything except rap, the last 7-8 years I’ve really gotten into classical. So your third paragraph comments help a lot and probably seal my decision to get the Aeolus, in part for the times when a bit of extra accuracy would be good for orchestral and chamber music.
But sometimes an extra bit of warmth is good too. So maybe I’ll have to get the Aeon 2 as well. First, because I already have the accuracy/resolution base covered (with the Senn 800S, 660S and 6XX, Beyer T1, T1S and 880, Dan Clark Ether CX and Alpha Prime, Clear, HE560, AKG 702 Annie, Grado 500i and Koss ESP 95x.) And second, because I really like warm sounding headphones (I have the Senn HD 567, 595, 598, 599, 58x and 650, Mad Dog, LCD 2 and Oppo PM1).
Like you, I “just go for what I enjoy.” And as you said, “both of these headphones are extremely enjoyable.” From your comments in this and the previous post it seems like Aeolus and Aeon 2 would suit me exceedingly well and probably be among my all-time favorites.
Sometimes I feel stupid for having too much audio gear, and also feel guilty because any money left over in my various budgets goes to additional charitable giving. But I really do love both music and sound. Plus, this year I could just bump up the charitable giving for any extra spending on new headphones. Food for thought…
But for now, MRphotography, your information has been exactly what I needed and was looking for. You have really helped me. So again thanks very much…Lee
