    Lightweight over-the-head(phones) for running

    I don't think a PX-100 would be tight enough. I'm seriously considering buying a PMX-100 for this purpose though

    Sennheiser advice: upgrade PX100!

    although the sennheiser HD 202's are decent for their price, they are nowhere near as good as your px-100's! if you're looking at closed headphones with a sound quality comparable or better than your px-100's, then the AKG K81 DJ's are really a bargain that you should consider. i have similar...

    Looking for a "good quality

    If you primarily watch movies and play games, i'd recommend the 555's over the 595's. For music the 595's are more enjoyable. The 580's paired with a cheap amp might be right for you as well.

    Looking for an improvement over PX100s

    I used to own the predecessor to the EH 350's, the HD 497's, and I think I can safely say that it won't be a big upgrade.

    HD 25-1 Success Story.

    the 25-1 and 25-13 cables are asymmetric, but you can wrap right end of the symmetric 25-sp cable around the square piece of plastic that secures the cable to the right driver. that way, you can use the 25-sp cable without the dreaded Y you could always buy the 25-13 cable and reterminate it...

    Any success in converting?

    converterd my sister (bought my 555's), 2 friends (one bought my 497's, the other went cheap and got 202's) and my girlfriend, who thought the px100's were 'cute' and correctly identified my 25-1's as 'headphones made for Arch Enemy' that's a lot of sennheisers
