Those HM5s look tempting, I love giant pads... They look plush and tank-like at the same time which is exactly what I want. Really pushing my price range though.   About AKGs. I hear nothing but praise for the K 240s and how they're one of the few 'classic'/'industry standard' headphones still in production, but they're open-back. Is there a closed-back equivalent?

Hello forum,   So I need a pair of big comfortable headphones for fall semester at college. I have a Harmon Kardon amp and tons of audio/recording/musician gear, but 90% of the time I'll be using them for music on my laptop (with or without an external amp/interface).   I never planned to spend much on head phones and I'm more of a car audio guy, but as I find myself spending more and more time at a computer in a public setting I've become more critical.
