Hi,   My main setup for office use is: iPod classic -- iBasso T3 -- PK1, and as I like the forward mids/"Grado" sound, this setup has served me well for my music which is 60% rock, 20% hip-hop, 20% others, mostly in AAC 256 kbps VBR.  (Can go all loseless ALAC but I can't hear the difference).   Eg. The Black Keys, The White Stripes, Shiina Ringo, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metric, Jay-Z, etc..   Recently there's a lot of construction going on and I've switched to my...
there's a bunch of sylvania gold brand 480a gold pins available on ebay now   http://cgi.ebay.com/NOS-NIB-Sylvania-Gold-Brand-408A-6028-Tubes-Pair-/160537140209?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item2560c25bf1#ht_500wt_726   i bought some to try out to, will update when i get a chance to compare them with my other tubes 
i've been listening to the I+ with OPA2107 + WE408A for about 3 months, and i've just recently rolled in a pair of Mullard EF91, and on first listen i find that the WE408A provided more bass than the EF91, so you may want to give the 408A's a try if you find the bass a bit lacking with your existing tubes
here's my setup:

hi!   thx for having this giveaway, and merry xmas + happy new year to everyone!
Most laptops have onboard sound cards instead of dedicated sound cards, unless it's a gaming laptop with focus on 3d audio effects etc.. you should check and see if your laptop has digital output via optical toslink or coaxial.. if it doesn't, then you will have to look for a DAC or DAC/Amp combo that supports USB input   if your mp3's are 192 kbps or lower, you may consider getting the headphones first and see if they sound good directly out of the laptop's.. as a good...

here's a good review on a few popular closed headphones in your price range   http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/480354/closed-headphone-shoot-out-k271-vs-dt770-vs-d5000-vs-srh840   what will the source of your music be coming from? computer (onboard vs sound card), ipod, other? and what file formats are your music in? (lossy mp3/aac or loseless flac/alac or others?)
i've had my 225i since may when i bought them during a trip to nyc, originally i used it with my ipod classic + ibasso T3, and the bass was a bit too much for my liking on most songs (i listen to 50 rock / 30 hip hop / 20 pop+others)   recently i've been using it with little dot dac_i and hybrid i+ with opa2107 and we408a tubes.. bass is less than the T3, and i'm still getting used to the new sound signature, but it's a good change from the T3   female rock...
