It's sold out now.
I'm in Brooklyn and would appreciate a heads up if/when this happens.
X-Fi Titanium HD - $180 Audio-Technica ATH-M50 - $159   I have the X-fi HD and it is very good. Replaceable opamps will let you play around if you want to. I think if you play a lot of games you really should get an x-fi card. The software it comes with allows you to switch back and forth from gaming to music mode which is really nice as well.   I do not have the M50s but they are often recommended as the best rock/metal phones in that price range.
Great, thanks all. I have an Audinst MX-1 on the way!
I'm trying to put together a headphone rig for my office but have a few questions/issues. Because I'd rather not mess with a separate player all day long my plan is to use an external dac/amp connected to my work desktop by USB. I feel silly asking this, but should I have a problem getting a digital audio signal through the usb ports on the motherboard of my generic office pc, as opposed to a sound card with a digital out? Is it as easy as plug and play? Just asking...
Hey all, Are there any portable players with digital out other than the iRivers? Thanks in advance!

I played with BBE a bit but my ears tell me all it does is drop out the midrange which I'm not a fan of. I'm going to mess with the EQ a bit more but unless I stumble on something groundbreaking I'm planning to bring it back. I don't feel like I should have to mess with a $170 device to get it to sound better than my computer.
This morning I picked up a Cowon J3 and I'm a bit disappointed. With my ER-4Ps does it sound better than my Nano? Yes. Better than my Droid? Yes. better than my X-fi Titanium HD? No. Also doesn't sound as good as the headphone amp in my Cairn 4808A but that's quite a bit more expensive. The sound is detailed but gets a bit harsh at the top, is distorting high frequencies a bit, and is lacking the punch of the x-fi. I don't mean volume. The J3 gets as loud as I'd like it...
