I might recommend to listen before committing though as there is a good possibility the flavour is not to your taste (the omega 2 can sound rather dull unless you drive it with much more powerful amps than something like the 323). The recommendation to check it out is even more relevant if you were to spring up for the sr009 as it's a rather polarizing headphone.
Good luck with resolving your debt, is it the typical US grad college dept? In any case, congrats for working hard to resolve it!
I went to school for art (Fine Art, Painting) for half a second (3 months) before running out of money (a blessing, really). Then Massage Therapy school, and then RN School. RN's make good money, but it's a career designed by demons and it slowly eats your soul. It's not the patients, they're actually the best part! It's doing everything in the dumbest way possible. I mean that. The only reason you don't die every time you go into the hospital is pretty much due to RNs who, despite a mind-numbingly number of idiotic transcriptionist tasks, have somehow caught and corrected some aspect of your care that really needed attending to.
I'm looking to relocate and get my Massage Therapy license again and build that up on the side. The end-game is Industrial Design school (it's appropriate to my hyper-critical mind). Before I can embark on ID school, I really need to get out of debt first. The SR-009 rig is a 'breathing space' plan betwixt killing the debt and plunging back into college in my early 40s.
