I lurked here for about a month getting feedback on what's the best bang for the buck in headphones. After living with Grados and Sonys for years I decided comfort was what I really needed since I no longer can stand things in or touching my ears and closed cans make my ears sweat profusely. I found a good deal ($150 shipped) on new Senn 580's...they fit perfect and sound wonderful.
For an amp I want a used maxed-out Meta or wait for a PPA. Cardas cable upgrade after that. DVD-A/SACD's sound luscious out of my new Pioneer DV-563A universal player....will the madness never end? A good theme song for this forum is "While My Wallet Gently Weeps".
