Hey, congrats, you made a headphone/wireless radio combo! 
Are you in the USA? If so, pick up a distressed packaging Etymotic HF3 from Amazon.com for under $70. It's the best single-armature (and better than most dual-armatures) headphone you'll get anywhere for under $150.
I vote for this one if your budget is around $10, even over the Monoprice. The Monoprice sound slightly better, though with less bass; but the comfort of the Philips is far superior, and they're barely visible once in your ear and you can sleep with them in. Better cable on the Philips too.
A) Not a discount worth mentioning B) Plus $8 or more shipping C) Not from Amazon
Es o él di!
Hello everyone! Up for sale is a pair of official Mr Speakers 'Mad Dog' headphones with leather comfort strap. They come with the deep and extremely comfortable Alpha Pads, as well as an original pair of Fostex new-style T50RP pleather pads that are almost as comfy and offer a different, mid-forward signature so you can try both. Note they are not the Shure SRH-840 pads that are offered by Mr Speakers. Also included is the original box and soft pouch, and a grey V-moda...
The headphones in question are factually called "Mad Dogs". They are by a member here whose user name is "Mr Speakers". They might be mistakenly called "Alpha ____" because of the option to have custom-made 'Alpha Dog' Earphone Pads installed on them. I can't imagine why anyone would call them "Darth ____", or anything else.
Yes, of course it means the same thing. However, fans and AC units are both at lower volumes and generally audible and used for shorter periods of time than the theoretical uninterrupted stream of quiet music for 10+ hours.   EDIT: I should also clarify I'm talking about it causing mild hearing damage/loss of frequency perception in general, and not as a cause of tinnitus, which may be confusing some.
It changes your perception of volume. You're right that 60db on the eardrum from 100 feet away is the same as 60db on the eardrum from 2 inches away, but you are less likely to perceive something nearby as being at the same volume.
It's an uninterrupted stream of acoustic energy. Ambient noise like speaking, cars, birds, etc are not uninterrupted. An uninterrupted session of TV, radio, etc will do the same kind of damage if close to the ear.
