HD595's broke and they're well past they're warranty so I have an excuse to get some nice new lids. I'm set on getting over ear headphones. Can be either open or closed. I would prefer a flat response, but can be flexible. I'll be playing through a headphone amp, but I guess being able to play an ipod without a preamp would be a nice to have (but completely secondary to the experience through the HA). I have a soft limit of about $350, but will go to $700-800 if you can sell me on it. Any suggestions? I've been checking out the beyerdynamic DT 880, Grado Reference Series (1 and 2), and Ultrasone Pro 900. Thoughts? I wanted to check out some audeze, but they are way out of my price range.
edit: also checked out the AKG K550 and Phillips Fidelio X1
