I think I will go for the NFB-10SE. I just need to sell my NFB-5 now...lol
A simple answer might be, if you like what you already have now, would be to upgrade, as I just saw there is a new version of the NFB-10, if you don't mind re-terminating your headphones.
It's a pity you can't visit the mainland USA or even Japan for a visit, as you could go to a meet and try a lot of gear.
