That being said, I know how you feel. I was doubtful about the T50RP's as well until I heard the Thunderpants. In the world of high fidelity I have come to learn that price is not indicative of quality nor performance. Stock the T50RP is a meh/nice headphone but modding them takes them to an entirely different level, a level perhaps on par if not above all high end headphones.

I daresay it'll be far longer than you think... Better check your source again..

I sold my K701 and K501 w/ K701 pads and retained my tweaked T50RP.

I'm seriously considering getting one of these now, fist time buying "real" headphones BTW

I'm thinking of selling my HD598 because of them. I only switch off of 2 headphones at a time. 3 main fullsized are too complicated for me.

^That's another reason. Full sized are too bulky to keep in the office :D

I'm actually looking to swap for a IEM.

 

I've got my T50RP that plays everything amazingly well

My MDR-V6 as a neutral. Everyone should have a neutral

Grado SR80i just because

 

Brainwavz M1 I love to death

Koss IEM horrid sound. Fun to trash with.

 

 

See my predicament?

Personally the stock T50RP don't need a warm source, it would bloat the heck out of the bottom end to me, then again I like mid-cetered phones.

I'll be using onboard -> old yamaha receiver in the meantime

 

If your Yamaha is decent you might just want to use it and just get a DAC to bypass your onboard. Old Yamahas tend to be a little bright, which should be a good match.

My receiver is slightly warm and moves them quite nicely. The Stock T50RP's are all Mids. Everything else is like on a slope

Modded my way, nice, but not HD800 nice.

 

I really enjoy Pianos and Jazz.

Not only that, but they sound hollow and weak. They truly hide and give no hint of what they are capable of.
