Interesting suggestion. Not sure if I feel comfortable jumping right into all the modding possibilities at this point in time, was looking for a bit more plug-and-play with something respectable out of the box, and see where that takes me. But I will do some reading based on your suggestions, thank you.
What else ya'll got?
Mad Dogs. for example, are purchased as a turn key already modded can.
The Shure SRH-940 is also good, but requires an amp.
The T-70 P is good, but very expensive for what you get.
