Beyerdynamic DT-880 Pro (250 ohm): Still my top reference, highs are dominant over mids, good bass for a semi open.

AKG K121: cheap, sturdy and comfy for casual listening.

Koss Porta pro: this one is here for its great value.

Sennheiser hd280: Great seal, durable, not that good sounding.

Sennheiser CX 400-II: Comfortable, casual In ears with too much bass.

Jeff, If you mean the TDK HA-FX40's, then don't bother. After the Philips, these things will be very disappointing to you. They have recessed mids and sparkly highs that are most definitely fatiguing, even after 50-100 hours of burn in. I rarely use mine.

You mean JVC FX40's (and I generally agree with your assesment - well, I didn't find the mids to be too recessed, but I could not overcome the brightness). Not sure what Jeff meant by "super cheap TDK's", but if he meant the TDK MT300's, you could do a lot worse (they are pretty darned good for $10-$20).

Yep Wayne got it, those are the ones.

 

I have an XSCargo that's located about 10 minutes from my house, but I haven't had the time to drop by. Stock checker shows 25 in stock, so I might go there soon.

I wouldn't worry. They'll only sell at snail's pace from there.  biggrin.gif

I would imagine,after all HD25's are not audiophile headphones.I recall hearing senn hd558's at a friend's house and the sound was nice and transparent.Of course this was long ago so I may be wrong.

Nice list, I've said it for yrs, that the Denon 1001, is top of the heap...I'd put the 2000 just over it, but the price difference isn't worth it to me. The 1000/01 are 90% it's bigger brother at under 1/4th the price and going upwards.
