    Best $50-60 dollar headphones

    SR60, or if you're cheap, Koss KSC75. They're a quarter of the price and are only a bit worse than my SR80's. Treble is a bit tinny in comparison, but it's hardly noticeable.

    Ripping Software???

    Honestly, I just use Windows Media Player to rip to 192 kbps. I can't hear the difference between the CD itself and that, plus it saves space.

    What's more important: Musicality or Detail?

    Unlike many here, I don't sit back and listen to music just to do so. I listen to my music while I'm doing something else - surfing the net, driving, doing homework, etc. Having a beat to go along with my activities is more important than hearing every little detail without a good feel. I'd take...

    Zen Vision M or Zune? Crap I need a new player!

    You guys are making me feel terrible about yesterday's ZVM purchase. As far as I'm concerned, the ZVM sounds great with good recordings.

    Can someone help with my choices?

    I just got a Zen Vision: M today and I really like it. Great sound quality, good video, nice GUI, and it feels/looks nice. The software's half-decent too.

    Zen Vision: M battery life

    Thanks for the replies. But what I was actually asking is how long the battery will keep its juice; ie, until the player dies from an unusable battery. This would probably take years, but I'm just curious. Somehow the thought of a non-removable battery makes me edgy. Edit: On the topic of...

    Zen Vision: M battery life

    My Zen Micro broke after going through the wash (slap self), so I'm getting a new player. Best Buy is sending me a voucher for the value of my Micro (they actually made good on the warranty!), and I'm thinking of getting a Zen Vision: M, since I don't like the Zune or iPod too much (and their...

    KSC75 storage?

    I wouldn't worry about a case. They're extremely durable (they went through the wash with my Micro. They survived fine, but unfortunately the latter did not). I just have mine wrapped up on my desk.

    J.J. Cale (sounds like a more laid-back Clapton in both singing and guitar) The Who's Peter Townshend Red Hot Chili Peppers - John Frusciante. I went to a concert at the end of last year and was incredible. Audioslave/Soundgarden: Chris Cornell Dire Straits: Mark Knopfler

    SR60/KSC75 worth it?

    The KSC75s are the best $12 I ever spent. They sound nearly as good as my SR80's and they're very portable.

    What headphones do you have, and what do you still want?

    Have: KSC75 SR80 I'm still a bit of a newcomer to the Hi-Fi thing, so I'm still trying to figure out what exactly I like. The ones I have sound great for what I listen to (rock, reggae, acoustic), but I'm curious as to what the upper-end Grados sound like. And Senns; never even heard a pair.

    I like calzones too. I should have re-phrased that: fat chicks eating school calzones. Anyway, they really look like something an astronaut would wear - in a bad way. They look big and white and overly puffy. And with lots of weird plastic things jutting out.

    What's my weakest link?

    Heh, my ears don't think so. They sound fantastic through my computer.
