Thanks for the nice comments Train. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. It certainly is nice to start out in this hobby by attending a meet with a wide selection of gear. I have the Sennheiser IE8 and you would be welcome to come by and check them out as well as my HD650 again. IE8 was my only higher end headphones for over a year and worked pretty well as a place to start, especially since I was in school and spent a lot of time walking around campus and IEM lent itself well for that. Also, I have found several of the local members to be quite accommodating when you need to evaluate a certain piece of gear to help with a purchasing decision.
