Just plugged in a pair of Klipsch Heresy III#

A bit like my Grado headphones. Flawed but fun...

They had some hooked up at Audio Gold in north London a couple of months ago. Might still be there if anyone wanted to audition them. I can't really comment on them since they make my 6:1s look/sound puny. But sounded great, running turntable through such-and-such amp.

Try and smile and wince at the same time - that is what they do to me. But they are horns so it is to be expected. You are right they are fun.

The 3s are reported by others to be more refined than the originals...but, yes. A sort of American muscle car equivalent - immediate, generous, often uncouth.

I've seen (read) a number of posts elsewhere recommending the AP10 with them...
