    To others that have tried them both, did any of you notice a difference between the two headphones aside from the type of pads? If I'm using them to listen to the radio/mp3's/movies from my computer, is it worth getting the sr80's or just the sr60's with some sennheiser pads?

    Thanks,

    The 80s had slightly more high details when I listened to them. I think they use the same drivers, the design is only slightly different on the 80s, and the change is slight, IMO, and I had difficulty justifying the significant jump in price. But I was so torn because the 80s did sound better, I ended up getting no headphones at all.

    Please ask for specific model recommendations in the appropriate hardware area. The Basics section is intended only for general discussion at the beginner level. Thanks.

    Given your usage, the 60s will be more than adequate. If you were going to use higher end source equipment (CD, SACD, DVD-A, etc.) then the extra $$$ for the 80s might be justified.
