Getting sound reproduced/heard "perfectly" with headphones above say 2 kHz without the ill efects of one sort or another is always going to be difficult. Both the headphone itself and/or ear interface with it can - and unfortunately do - go wrong and isolating the fault is anything but easy. I own ( and use) AKG K 1000 and Stax Lambda Pro, among others, that are reasonably free from these issues. I have joined head-fi primarily on order to get some IEMs that are as close...
Nice to see Penon including tips most of the B3 users found good - bit I am sticking with my tips from XKDUN CK-M700. Works best for me. One interesting anecdote. A week or so ago, I was demoing B3 Pro (Old version) to a friend - and he gave a most interesting remark. I used crosfeed and appropriate bass lift with "enough" power on some VERY high quality material. At the limit of what is possible. His remark was : I would be afraid to use these .  Why? On most "normal"...
I find it REALLY hard to understand it is still available - with only one offer. Thought it would be long gone by now... Guys, do Google a bit those components - EACH is worth the BIN price for the entitre stack ...- they really do not make them that way anymore - or ever,  for that matter.   
In vinyl record, cycling, electronic parts & similar shops that do require attention on the part of the buyer, remember there is always an ( most of the times invisible ) sign reading : BRING TIME WITH YOU !
I know this is THE thread for the all-in-one-box-vintage loving guys, but for LESS than you are obviously prepared to splash on a receiver, here a really good deal on an incomparably more serious piece of equipment :   http://www.ebay.de/itm/NIKKO-ALPA-220-AMP-BETA-20-PREAMP-EQ-20-GAMMA-20-TUNER-RACK-MOUNT-VINTAGE-/271480927614?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item3f3586357e   That about good deal holds true even if shipped to Europe & after paying ransome to customs ......

 The famous line by Calimero http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calimero  ( It is injustice, IT IS ! ) - how come all the Westminsters I ever got to see were even more dull than the supposed to be #1 in Dullnes of LP Jackets, the Eterna from now ex German Democratic Republic ? No idea about the sound/vinyl quality of the reissues shown, but never a dull moment with their cover art ...
After my posts, no one can accuse me of being a felt mat lover - but I thought it is appropriate to share this with you :    http://www.ebay.de/itm/Pizza-Slipmat-Plattenspieler-Plattenteller-Auflage-bunt-Filz-fur-Vinyl-/251519427547?pt=DE_TV_Video_Audio_DJ_Equipment_Teile_Zubeh%C3%B6r&hash=item3a8fb9e3db
My German is only good for reading - but had a  moment "reading" it - . Good luck with the '60 all in one radio cabinet !
No difference in antiskate force going normal or from inner to outer groove.
