 Android is also an option, as it inputs the same as you computer.  The Sony ZX1 has been on my radar, and would work with the "idevice" models...
   I have both, and get liking the HD25 "house sound".  They have a forgiving presentation, and some of my music that lacks the quality one would hope for benefit from this. Also, I was amazed by how much the HD25 benefits from a cable upgrade.  I now am of the opinion that the stock steel cable is the weak link of this headphone.  I know many will scoff at this view, which I understand.  But of the 4 headphones I've recabled, the HD25 had the greatest upswing in...
