    Expensive headphones really worth it?

    Isn't there a HiFi shop you could go in and try some different phones?   Even if they don't have that particular model at least it will give you an idea of the playing ground.   I 've been disapointed buying blind myself, wouldn't want it to happen to you.

    MS-1 pads?

    I think if you order direct from Grado you can request the bowl pads instead at no extra cost. Extra comfy pads are cheaper than bowls on the internet, so if you can get the bowls for free I would recommend that.

    Television - Marquee Moon (Do you like the remaster?)
