I loved finding underdog that perform over their price range. I make the experience even more enjoyable. Hoping these won't disappoint me. I have a list of headphones (DT1350, SR325, T50rp) to let go if they meet my expectation.
Hey, Simon. Greetings. I'd expect that if the K167s do meet your expectations, the you'd probably still want to keep the Fostex T50RPs, depending on which mod you are running. If it's a good mod, then the Fostex are probably best to hang onto for being a "budget" giant killer. I can't comment on the DT1350, as I have not owned the pair and I think we've all had a pair of Grado's in the collection at one point or other. The Grados draw us in and we get connected to headphones. Then, we want more - more accurate high frequencies, better bass, etc. - and, that leads us on a journey of upgrade-itis. But, with the K167, an amp is surely in order, but one doesn't need to buy something too beefy to keep up with the demands - just enough to supply some decent current.

I was hoping you'd say that. I have some craft felt that I'm going to cut some circles out of. I'll use the circles inside of the K167 until the headphones properly break in - and, I don't want the extra detail in the sound to affect my view of them until the bass gets up to speed via a proper break-in.
I just received my shipping notice a few hours ago for a delivery tomorrow morning. The headphones are just 100 miles away, or at least that is the point where they were placed into the hands of FedEx. Good times. Good times.
