Don't get me wrong Scott, I am always interested in a GTG (and I thought the KC GTG tour was a BLAST!!), just not a "this vs that" GTG. We used to be able to do that and have fun posting about the...

I heard the 800's at a KC headphone GTG we had during the winter. I really liked them, I usually like Grado's the best (even though they are crazy uncomfortable) and always thought the Senn's I've...

I'm not really interested in a "this speaker vs. that speaker" GTG.

So... there is no such thing as some guys liking hot bass with a house curve and other guys liking flat bass.

Of all the blind GTG's I've been to or hosted NONE of them had loud volumes. The exception would be your second blind subwoofer shoutout, but that wasn't testing speakers.
