SRH840 for cheapy closed can I really like. ER-4S for FR no doubt. HE500 or HD600 for beginning into "reference" cans that spread far and wide.   If I'm just looking at a not wildly popular can, definitely the Paradox.

While I do see where he is coming from, trying and doing it properly never hurts anyone right?    Disclaimer: He is a awesome guy, but...
