Nothing will be more comfortable than a set of D7000's with the Lawton "Angle Pads" to me. I think they can keep the existing chassis if they had some sort of curved or angled pads.
The first gen LCD-2 pads were actually pretty awesome, it's just you get a bit more of a sound chamber with today's pads.
Another area I found the HE-500 to beat the HD800: watching movies. While the HD800 did have better soundstaging, the bass impact of the HE-500 really gave movies that much more realism. Plus comparing to surround sound of a home theater, even the soundstage of the HD800 can't hold a candle. I would say soundstage doesn't matter as much because of this. The bass impact of the HE-500 really does make movies theater quality though.
One other note: the HE-500 is heavier, but I've developed the neck muscles to sit through a movie with them now.
I thought it more odd of him talking about dynamic (volume) range of metal. I guess I don't listen to the kinds of metal that have soft and subtle parts. I'm tired of arguing when it's unlikely any two person have heard the same headphones through the exact same chain, and then there's the whole subjective side of things, not to mention mental bias.
That said person likes to stick himself in things he has no direct experience with and claiming his opinion as fact and knows no bounds to achieve his goal.
Never said I had a home theater setup. For those that do more power to you. Also, I'm watching past midnight in an apartment on my laptop. Never said the HE-500 was ideal for watching movies, just better than HD800 at it.
An analogy: $5 is more than $1, but I wish I had $100.
I do, however, invite you to argue the following statement since you sure love debating: 100 > 5 > 1. I like my chances here.
Here are some ideas to get you started: '>' is not an universal symbol, there are no units after the numbers so it's ambiguous...
