Yeah Rick; these things are something else again! I am as happy with my silver mushrooms as you are with your golden ones!!
What is surprizing is just how much better they sound than the MS-1s without even having an amp. I really didn't expect this much of an improvement. A lot of the folks on the other forum were warning me about setting myself up for disapointment.
No disapointment here!
Yup; I was thinking of changing out the pads and throwing the bowls an the MS-1s and 414s on the MS2s after the new wears off a bit. Right now I'm almost afraid to touch them and add fingerprints even!!
I'm not sure if I'm quite ready to classify the bowls as more comfy than the 414s yet.....I'm not sure I'm ready to say even "as" comfy as 4141s yet, but I going to give them a real good chance as I'm very happy with the way these cans sound! I do have to admit to having worn them for a bit over three and a half hours since they showed up this afternoon, and that ain't bad!!
Had to take them off when the kids got home from school and we had dinner.(couldn't wear them with the PCDP at dinner cuz I dont have a 1/4 to 1/8" adapter, or good life insurance. The Wife, ya know!
Speakin' of the Wife. She's been making noises about taking over the MS-1s for her computer and zen.
....I guess that's ok....shucks, I don't think I'll be wantin' to listen to lesser cans anyways!!
So....I put the pizza-box up on the dresser next to the one from the MS-1s, and it hit me(duh; no kidding!)that, Hey! I have two out of three of the Alessandros! I have also read that some folks find MS-Pros as being OK with most classical. Hmmmmmm.....? Wonder if MS2i with a dry analytical amp for rock and....MS-Pro with a good warm tube amp for classical!
My M50s do it all! Why can't phones!? Unfair!!
Hey! another CD just ended! Maybe bowls AREN'T so bad after all!
