Head-Fi's Best Sellers
My favourite cans that I own are the HP100's, unfortunately due to my own mistreatment the plastic holding the let cup broke and now I can't get a proper seal and they are somewhat uncomfortable. Before this happened the combination of those and the FiiO E18 was the greatest thing that had happened to me since moving from the Skullcandy Aviators to the AKG K141-MKII's. Dead silent background, deep controlled bass and airy detailed treble and very close to nuetral. IMO it's very good pairing. Further improved when the E18 is being used as an amp for the ODAC.
As to the depth issue, I read teh the HM5 earpads work well with the HP100's, but I have not heard this setup for myself so YMMV.
Back to topic
Oh and best downtempo album for me is World of Sleepers by CBL. It was one of the albums that got me into the genre and has been my fav ever since
In this search you have many discussions about pads on the HP100/HP150's.
Out of the newer comers to the Downtempo scene I would like to re-endorse Hinkstep's latest My Forest Queen
Also of the later comers:
And a facebook page run by me and 2 friends: Auditory Relaxation
Another good page is pSycHill

Please contribute more Mr.LazyAnt. Wow - Benji Vaughan .. That was something special. Have any more gems along this grain?
Nothing Benji-like springs to mind, but in this post (seriously like.... 3 posts up) there are links to three Facebook pages which have a variety of different downtempo electronica selections.
Here are some suggestions which MAYBE come close-ish to Benji Vaughan:
- Ooze - Where the Fields never end
- Gay Satanic Hippie - Tiefenrausch
- Solar Fields - BLUE
- Huuhaa - Haahuu
- AMB - Going Down (This is probably the closest of the lot. Still though...)
