X2 on Triples for movie listening. I sometimes struggle to pick up English accents in movies from my TV, but with the trips, off my laptop with crappy onboard sound, voice is rendered with great clarity even at low volumes. Even whispers are sharply audible.
I regularly use my Trips for watching movies off my laptop and even in flights the quality of sound reproduction and isolation is outstanding.
Infoseeker : re your question about amping - both 'phones are efficient enough to run well and sound great without amping. Amping will give you an incremental sound benefit, but like me, you could easily live with a decision to not amp. Especially if you have a source with good synergy.
EQing does benefit the sound. And of course, experimenting with tips can also modify the SQ.
