Yeah, definitely the Stax here. But then, maybe that's just because I have different standards for beauty than most people and don't find the average supermodel very attractive. The sound of a great headphone however? Quite beautiful, and it's beauty that comes from the inside and which lasts as long as the vessel does.

This!

I would probably get the stax and sell them. Not because I don't want the stax, but I don't have anywhere near enough cash to buy an amp to use it properly. From my understanding, they sound awful out of a crappy amp/no amp. (My current options are a Sansa Clip, an iPhone, or an E11.)

I'll go all the way and spend whatever, just to get something that I'm happy with. I think they top out under £250, which is a lot for an IEM, but potentially worth it.

OFC if there's anything better or some cheap customs to be had...

Agreed. So much.

I'd choose having sex with a supermodel rather than being offered a SR009 any day. But maybe that's just me.

Same.

You Sir, are my hero !! But you could take it a few steps further. For example, you could film your performance and sell it to the honorable folks of the pornographic industry. MOAR PROFIT! = MORE STAX!

Oops. Thankfully, I can probably just buy one insanely good amp, and leave it for, oh, I don't know, maybe a whole year? LMAO. D'you think there is a keyboard just with all caps lock keys? I want one to fullfill my last demand.
