Oh yes, you will notice a world of difference. The clarity will be much better, the bass will be better...
Thanks, i've updated the entry
So long as he won't be moving around while he wears them, i'd suggestion getting A500s. They're US$109, plus maybe another $10 in shipping. They're great headphones sound wise, very comfortable too.
I owned the Beyers briefly, their comfort's reasonable, not as good as A900 of course, but not bad. I think the 25s are supraaural, which I find less comfortable. For portable use i'd go with canal phones, MD33s if you don't need isolation, Ety 6i's if you do.
I think your original idea of V6's is good. They're about as industry standard as cans get for pro work, and they're meant to be very robust.
This is an area that you really have to try yourself to decide what's best for you. I had E3s, hated them, got EX71s, and love them. Others have the opposite experience. I don't use an EQ on my portable rig. I suggest reading a few opinions and comparisons, then take a punt by buying one. If you don't like it, return it, and get the other one.

For me, very little.
What BigD said. IMHO for the same price, open cans sound better than closed cans. I use closed cans because I need the isolation at home and work, but i'm tempted to by myself a pair of Senny 595s even though I have no real use for them

Amalgamate the mega amps thread into your db! Shouldn't take long, eh? I thought about doing reviews for all sorts of related gear, but I decided against it because it's too much work. I don't think amps make much of a difference, none have for me, so it'd be wasted...
