I am dying to buy a nice pair of headphones and I'm looking to spend up to around $150-160.
I want them strictly for home use, and want something with a good length cable (unless extensions are easy to do... are they?) as I'd be plugging them into my receiver.
I would use them to watch movies / tv shows, and listen to music. The music I listen to the most is live shows of Phish and Grateful Dead, with a lot of other psychedelia/rock/jam bands mixed in like Pink Floyd, etc.
Also I'd want to be able to use these with my iPod classic, and was wondering if this amp would help me out when I'm using them at home (or with my iPod):
I was thinking about maybe getting the HD595s? How are those? If I'm using them in the same room as somebody, are they "open" enough to disturb someone in the same room as me if I'm watching a movie or something? I'm asking this as I'll be going to college in less than a year and don't want to not be able to use them in my dorm since I'll have a roommate :(
