What type of music do you enjoy?  If you like a balanced sound signature, I would highly recommend the MEElectronics A151.  They're currently around $50 at Amazon   http://www.amazon.com/MEElectronics-A151-BK-Balanced-Armature-Headphones/dp/B004OBZ2XQ   and use a balanced armature design.  I've been very pleased with them and found the pair to be very comfortable.  The sound is relaxed and pleasing for extended periods of time.  I've found them to have a high...
Yep, just modded mine with a set of RX900 leather pads.  Did a (detachable) re-cable with canare star quad mini & a techflex sleave.  I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.  Nice set of cans for the price and *very* comfy.  I highly recommend the leather pads, though for the price of a set from JVC, you might as well just start with the RX900 - they can be had for around $50 or so.
Great, Thanks Dsnuts!  Might have to grab a set then.  Just finished modding my RX700s, but they're really bulky for commuting.
Do the HA-S600s fold flat like the HA-S700s?  Looking for a portable set of circumaural 'earmuffs' for winter commuting with my laptop bag.

I haven't heard the CX300, so I won't comment on them, but I haven't been very impressed with my Marshmallows (FX34s). The FX66 (Air Cushions) can be had for less than $30 and are far superior to their lower-end sibling, as many others have stated; well worth a few extra bucks for a more rounded and cleaner sound.
The biggest improvement you'll see from an amp is by using a LOD to bypass the internal headphone amp for a cleaner signal. I have practically the same setup (6G ipod, Q40s) and just recently picked up an ibasso D2+ for that very reason (and the DAC for home use). The Q40s are very easy to drive for most portable players and the 6G ipod is no exception, the Sansa Clip also drives them fine. So I'd suggest that it's only worth your trouble if: 1.) The source files are...

Sadly true, I had to convert my last serious girlfriend to gadgetdom.

I've also always had a computer in my house (we have 11 now) and my dad has always had fun keeping up on the latest shiny thing to buy. this...
