Yes, I agree that MS1 sounds cleaner and less muddy when compared to SR80. BUT for vocals, SR80 is better.
BTW, I find Audio-Technica earphones and headphones appeal more to the younger generations these days. During my time (in the 70s and 80s), Audio-Technical made some of the worst sounding headphones around, and they were all made in Japan then.

Unlike Audio-Technica which introduces a replacement model every 6 months or so. Sennheiser introduces theirs every 2-3 years, and AKG every 4-5 years interval. Grado has not replaced any of their existing models yet. The SR60 has been around since Michael Jackson's 'Bad' hit the Billboard chart. It is still very 80s sounding.

i'm still getting poisoned here in a photography forum
I just find it funny that a lot of people are more concerned with looks than functionality. Guess these marketing gurus out there are the real smart mother*******.
OT a bit since I happened to be talking about looks: what's up with these morons who wear beanies and singlets at the same time? In Singapore? You can't sit on the fence and be both HOT and COLD at the same time. Are they supposed to look cool? (No pun intended). You got to pick a side. Either wear that beanie together with a hoodie and make yourself look like a complete moron in our tropical climate here, or just wear that wife beater and keep that beanie off.
audio technia got 1 in-ear model, cost is $450 . anyone try that before? damn expensive for a in-ear .......
