Haha, my point was can these cans take a beating? like going to gigs, having jamming sessions 5 times a week, The occasional 'drop', e.t.c...

Hmm, not sure they can take it. M100, sennheiser hd25 and amperior are headphones that can take a beating.

+1 for JVC S500. A few weeks back I was in the same state and my budget was little over 150. I considered several options and finally bought S500. Believe me I am too happy with my purchase. More over, i know what to look for in my next phones.
I got s500 from Japan for just 50 bucks including shipping. But let me tell you that they are on little bassy side, fun phones but not for analytical listening.
From your post, I understand you are more towards analytical listener and my recommendation is ATH-M50. just pure sound, awesome. More over they will save you around 100 bucks. The other phones you mentioned may give you a little more audio quality but not worth the difference. Particularly with a note 2 & 258k mp3s, i think you can't even notice the difference.

I would love to save a 100 bucks/ explore other cans, but if you read I have a very limited choice :( ... I also can't order them from overseas the shipment and duty is just too much... The below site orders from amazon but they are selling the cans for Rs25,000 ($250)... :(

Hmmm... That's too high.

Try from a Japanese seller through eBay.

http://www.magiclamp.pk/index.php ... I think they order directly from Amazon, e.t.c... You can change the displayed price to dollars... They're selling 598's for $380 xD ... I guess for me its either the hd 598's or nothing... Please tell me if you find this jewel...

When someone sends you something they declare a certain value. Customs is charged based on that value
