I'm thinking of kickin' it lo-fi and going with an Altoids CMoy for a headphone amp for my PCDP and/or iPod setup and wondered what's a decent price to pay for a well made Altoids type tin CMoy? These look pretty decent: Micro Cmoy headphone amp - Opamp2227 - Amplifier - eBay (item 260537232275 end time Jan-20-10 03:44:31 PST) Is around $40 too much? I figure it's about $20 in parts to build a basic one (around $50 in parts for a premium one?). While I might be...
I'm looking for a portable or at least transportable amp to use bedside and around the house for use with an iPod, portable cd player, etc. I know there are great amps out there like the mini3, Pimeta, PPA and Meta42 that can be had if I watch the "amps for sale" emporium, but I'd like to just grab something immediately available, get it ordered and get to listening to some tunes! I've been out of the audio scene for a while, so aside from a $99 Airhead from...
From the places I looked around, the HD series was more expensive than the xx2 MkII series. I have a cat in the house, so an extra cable with the package is nice, as well as a couple different pad options (the Mk II's all come with velour and pleather, right?) I just checked online and the K240 Mk II is around $145, and the K242 HD is more like $270-- I'd like to limit the cost to around $150. Does the K240 Mk II have the thing that shuts them off when you take them off...
Well, I now have some Christmas fun money to play with and I'm looking at getting a new set of headphones. They need to be good for rock and classic rock and pop, and they have to sound good unamped (a slightly warmer sound signature would be nice, and they have to sound musical. I don't want to get back in to analyzing music, I just want to enjoy it. Here are my choices: AKG K240 Mk II AKG K141 Mk II Also, being able to lay down and listen to tunes in bed...
Man, that sure seems a great deal! I'm looking for something for unamped, closed use that can be sort of bang-around and these look pretty nice. thanks for the info! J.
I did a quick search for these on google shopping and it showed a price of arounf $169, but on Ebay, it seems that they seem to be going for around $75 with free shipping. That seems to be a pretty big discrepancy-- are the ones on Ebay legit?
Can't do IEMs-- too many problems with ear infections and I'd have to religiously clean them every night. I have some DBI's and they're reall nice, but they're pretty big and making laying down and listening to music difficult.
Can someone provide me some options for a closed set of cans that I can listen to while laying down? I want something clean yet full sounding that can work with a variety of musical styles. And fairly durable since they may get tossed off my head in the middle of the night if I fall asleep while listening to tunes. I'm assuming I'll need to go with something supra-aural to meet the laying down requirement. My budget is $80 or under. Here's what I could dig...

If you've got a bit of DIY know-how (or patience and some time), you can build one for ~$70. Alternatively, a brand new one can be had for ~$95. Where can one get a Mini3 brand new for around $95? I'm very interested, as I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on some HD25-1's too.
