Yes, DHL is certainly the more reliable option.
post #2717 of 18426

DHL came to me on the third day from shipment with some fees. Since my replacement DX50 may pick up fees again, I opted for EMS. They shipped it two days ago and it's going to be at my door today, making it the third day. We'll see what the fees are with EMS this time. :) Btw this is Canada, where customs and postal services are relatively crappy.

I listen to rock, jazz, guitar instrumental, etc. and would prefer something closed to block out noise and to avoid annoying others. A nice soundstage would be good, but not sure how realistic this is with closed headphone. I would be willing to spend up to $200, though less would be perfectly fine as well :-) 

I do not plan on buying an amp, by the way. 

For $200 maybe you can look at some used ath-esw9 or hd25.

Nice price!

I missed out on a mint one for $180 :(.

For the guy looking for really good $200 headphones...go with Senn HD25's. I still have my first pair for those rare times my wife takes over on long drives...lol

HD25s work extremely well with the DX50.

For below $500 I don't think anything comes close to the mad dogs for a closed can. It may not be that portable though but I've used it as such

Momentum?

People I ordered myself a DX50 yesterday, It had better sound better than my 4 year old, $90 cheaper and half dead sflo:2, or I will be extremely disappointed at today's audiophile DAP makers.

Momentum on-ear pairs great with DX50.

Tested but not owned ;)

i tried the momentums at B&H in NYC yesterday. They sounded great but for the sheer indestrucible value and portable-ness...go with the HD25's. They're just about impossible to destroy...seriously. They sound GREAT and "someone" on here is always selling a pair.

Although I've never heard the momentum, I can't believe it could sound better than the Mad Dogs. But then that's a matter of preference I guess.
