I found this. "19. Don't put nearfield monitors on their sides (unless they are dual-concentric types) as the sound from the tweeter and bass/mid unit will move out of phase if you move even slightly from the exact centre of the sweet spot. Sideways monitors may look trendy, but they don't work nearly so well as setting them up properly." http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/sep98/articles/20tips.html
Superlux HD668B - if you want to be cheap. semi-open, good transients bright sound. Sennheiser HD558 or 598 - open, lush sound, a bit more comfort. AKG K240 - semi-open, Also nicely priced, nice natural sound, very comfort with velour pads.   edit: added info
Talking about good headphones, I saw a guy using a 8" yamaha subwoofer with his Stax SR-202's. (in youtube)
Wow, another active headphone!    I'm still sure with a good design active headphones will far outperform passive ones. It's also nice as there is no need to worry about impedance matching and power requirements of your headphones.     edit: I though,still doubt that these headphones were going to be much special in terms of real hi fidelity.
I misread your post..  Yes that is quite interesting behavior from the driver.. 
Thanks alot! That slider holder is the part which is broken. 10$ is a bit steep for one plastic piece though, seriously. I'm going to try some diy methods for fixing it. Posting back when I get to it.
I think the DT100 were just made for midrange detail, not enjoyable music listening. Like with DT48 you can hear some nice midrange transients, but they were not as transparent as the DT48 either.  Having owned the two I've had lots of fun comparing them side by side. Also my DT100 has terrible coloration in 250-500hz range, which makes for a honky sound. That could improve clarity in speech applications, I don't know. You can get used to it, but listening to something...
Does anyone know of a guide how to open the headphones headband assembly. On my T20 the two small plastic "spikes" that keep the earpieces locked in place are broken. So I need to open them up and see what I can do..
DT100 is more accurate in the mids, more detail. HD600 is a bit blurred but more bass and much more relaxed presentation )
Looks like a Sennheiser HD625 :D Nice work.
