I seriously dislike the HFI-780s, and I've heard them a few times stock, modded, new and with a few hundred hours on them. They're boomy, grainy, and with an unnatural tone. The D2000s are slightly better, but also have a sloppy bass that improves a bit only when amped. I'm going to recommend the ATH-ESW9s (read up on them), but if you decide on that route, avoid buying from ebay as you'll find more fakes than not.
