My gripes with the A900s:
I completely rebuilt my current a900 once. New pads, new wires, housing. and now the plastic housing is falling apart...again... the pleather pads flake and flatten over time placing my ears closer to the drivers... It's time to to move on...
I'd prefer to stay between $200-300 but I'd be willing to spend a more for a good "deal".
My requirements are basically:
Needs to be closed headphones.
I listen to pretty much everything...so something good all-around?
My source is Asus Xonar D2X sound card. will probably upgrade soon, but will be PC audio.
I'm open to un-amped or amp/can combo recommendations.
