Before you go spending even more money, consider, a higher resolving headphone will not necessarily sound better unless the original source media you're playing is of high caliber, and not just high quality bit rate, but also simply the original recordings themselves need to be higher quality or really well done. If you're listening to itunes, youtube rips, downloaded variable rate MP3, etc, then you're in for some disappointment when you buy nicer equipment only to find it may sound even worse to you on something with some treble resolution that the XB series headphones lack and suddenly you start hearing all the imperfection, hiss, noise, artifact and grain. To give you an idea, if you get new headphones, sample some stuff from HDTracks.com and compare to some streaming stuff on youtube.
