Having said that, I did read a lot of reviews before investing more than 100 bucks on headphones. I get them free every time I upgrade my phone, so what do I know? Anyway, I finally settled on SR80's, and by the time it was my time, I had the 'e' to choose from. They are on my head now. Wow... let me tell you...
I always test audio equipment by playing The Allman Brothers Band... The Fillmore Concerts... and I start with "Done Somebody Wrong". I have extremely eclectic taste, and listen to everything from Opera, New Age, Chanting, Jazz, Rock, Country... I love music and I have many moods... but my default is always the above. Being a city boy, I really want to start using salty language because that is how I describe things when I'm happy. I have never ever ever heard that song sound so good. Then 'Stormy Monday' started playing... Lord Have Mercy On Me..... even the clapping sounded good. In fact, closing my eyes, I was there. You can hear little nuances on the guitar when the opening riffs are being played on 'You Don't Love Me' that I have never heard before. In fact, I even heard a mistake! They were pretty stoned after all... at least I hope they were. I swear I could hear their feet scraping the floor. Crystal clear and balanced and exciting.
These are new, so I will check back in, but man I am telling you... for a hundred bucks if you don't try these you are insane. Not to mention they are hand assembled in Brooklyn NY and made by a family owned American company. C'mon. Anyone who says American products aren't AWESOME have not tried these. That's all I got to say for now.
The SR80e's sadly offer none of that, not even the open sound-stage many have praised it for in comparison to a traditional closed-back design. What these headphone's offer is an exaggeration and accentuation of the mid frequency, with high's and low's being very recessed, almost non-existent to my ear's. This result's in a very particular genre of music benefiting from this tuned setup. Primarily acoustic, string based, music, alongside vocals with minimal instrument's.
And while the headphone's do deliver in that regard, as I was able to discover small nuance's within the singer's voice that I hadn't noticed beforehand, such as their tongue smacking against their palette while salivating. The cracks begin to show soon after using them, as I became fatigued extremely quickly from the harsh mid frequency that doesn't seem to roll off smoothly like other pair's of can's I've worn in the past. My ear's internal sensory hair's began to feel pain, even at lower volume levels, and I had to stop listening or otherwise end up with a headache. Soundstage is everso slightly more airy and open than most of my closed-back headphones, but not significantly enough to call them superior in that regard.
Comfort and build quality are also a big issue, with everything being made of smelly, cheap, plastic, and styrofoam ear pads, top all that off with a headband that has absolutely no padding. I mean I understand they were trying to re-divert the resources towards the quality of the drivers themselves but come on!
Ultimately the SR80e's don't offer you the best comfort, or listening experience you can have for the money, and could not recommend them with a clear conscience. If you want value then try out the ATH-M40x's, they're priced in the sub $100 dollar category, and offer a similar bright sound signature, with none of the fatigue and all the comfort.
