Well, again ... the reviews tell the story.

This time, the reviews seem good.

I have tried the SR-60 and SR-80 in the past and have always found them grossly uncomfortable to wear for any period of time. I much prefer the around the ear (circumaural) design on Senns like the 558/598. That goes for the sound too.

What do you think about this one : Grado SR-60i

Maybe you could look for the measurements of some models in a site like goldenears.com, for instance. From my experience, Kawai DPs with PHI sound don't sound well if the headphones' response is not flat enough. You should avoid specially those which rise mids and highs, or it will sound ringy as heck.

Good question, I don't have idea what an idiot invented the fixed chair for pianos, or for selling with pianos in packages.

I have encountered so many new students with bad posture because they have a fixed stool at home

This is what I was reffering to smile

I see a lot of people playing on some chairs which are completely not suitable for them. And the worst thing - when I tell sometimes - you should have (or your children) different (in most cases higher) bench - everybody tells me - no, it's ok, I'm fine with it / I don't need / we play only 0,5 hour a day etc.

It makes me so sad, that people don't care about their comfort and good posture of playing frown
The same with their piano condition - with not so much money they could have something much better.

Ech, dreams frown

Hey

Yes the chair is a adjustable chair with a worm ( is it the good translation for endless screw ?)
If I buy only the chair, the cost is 120€ and, but it's not so important, it's the same color (( black satin).

This forum is a very good idea and people are so nice and efficient...

As for the Grados, yes, they're pretty good, entry-level headphones for audiophiles -- see review; that site is my trusted source of information on all things headphones.

As for the chair, you really should go with an adjustable chair, perhaps with a storage space for notes and other things.

Maybe I write a bit late, but after a few weeks ago, I had almost the same doubt ... CN34 or CA63, with starting budget for CN34 smile (and some other piano as well, but that's not important). As a long term user of "plastic keys - Yamaha s08) I was convinced that CN34 will stand for all. Until I tried CS6 (polished version of CA63). It was such a difference ... for just around 700Euros more. I almost bought that CS6 when the shop discounted also the new CA65. First I thought that there is just some unimportant difference between them, but (after advice from Kawai James) i tried them both and found that the differences are not just on paper. GF is just a step better than RM3 grand and it should be considered.
So, the conclusion is ... tomorrow I have a delivery of CA65 ... and can't wait for it smile
