I'll be curious to try out the HFI-780's for movies though, once they get here...my buddy has them boxed up and will be shipping them in a couple days.
I agree they sound pretty good specifically for movies and good for laying down with the on ear.

Else, I just use my 2.1 speakers.
^^ Yall I highly recommend keeping an eye out for those premium beyers in 32 ohm. Lots of people avoid them because they think low impedance = not as good. Without getting into that whole subject as a result they appear in places for real cheap like $150 sometimes. If you get the chance to try them I would say give them a whirl for movies. You would be really surprised how light they are and the premiums clamping force is very gentle. You kind of forget they are there. I can find them fatiguing on music sometimes depending on the tracks but not with movies at all.
Anyway, like I said if you get a chance to try a pair, I'd go for it.

I figured that was the problem.
