 Or get a nice Pilot 78g in fine or extra fine. The pens mentioned above rarely have fine/extra-fine nibs - mechgamer's preference.
 A 18K nib feels a lot softer than a 14K one IMO and I can't imagine what 21K nib would feel like. This is Montblanc though so I couldn't speak for Japanese pens although the consensus in fountain pen communities is that every Japanese nib (with the exception of nibs deliberately designed to be flexible) writes like a nail regardless of gold content.
With IEMs, you won't be able to hear the person next to you with your music on even on lowest volume unless they're yelling of course which you don't really want. The Apple Earpods aren't bad at all, a huge step up from its predecessor (kudos to Apple).
Annnd.. there you go Sofia. I like them for the same reason: timbre. 
Hey Sofia,   My tastes are very similar to yours and you will not regret the HD600, trust me on this. Very well rounded, excellent timbre. I am unsure about your amp but if it can power it then it'll be fine. There's not a lot of difference between low-mid end amps anyway.   If you're not prepared to shell a grand on an HD800, an HD600 is your best bet for a headphone.    ps. I'm already out of the headphone hobby - the HD600 happens to kick me out.
Nice Targas 
  I have sold both headphones but if I were to buy one again, it would be the HD600 or HD800.   To my memory, here is a short dot point summary. DT880 is brighter than the HD600 although both were considered to have an all around signature. HD600's got better timbre but DT880 is more detailed. Soundstage on the DT880 is wider but the HD600 is deeper. HD600 is easier to power (vs DT880 600ohm).   Someone with both HD600 and HD598 once told me a while back that the...
Deceit, seeing that you're a classical pianist, I would strongly advise you to get the Sennheiser HD600. It provides just the right amount of bass (by no means the bass of the HD600 is weak, it presents with authority), mids and highs to reflect the various instruments. It may as well be the last headphone you'll ever need.  That said, the DT880 is a good choice too and it's on the brighter side of the fence. Timbre is better on the HD600 which is why I prefer the HD600...
Thanks for the reply! The Swans are too big but the Focal XS looks good with the iPod dock. How much better is the A5 over the A2?
Hello!   I need help choosing new speakers for my computer. The thing is.. I am not looking for huge bulky speakers that take up a lot of space and the speakers will most likely be close to the wall so heating might be an issue. What are some decent speakers with good all around performance and aesthetics? Preferably clean sounding with more or less neutral bass. It doesn't have to have high volume capability or flat sounding as I am needing just pleasant sounding...
