    My situation has been resolved too. I was paid back my money for the Grado SR325i he had listed. I was just about to open a PayPal dispute against him. I got the same explanation from Q about his account being hacked. However I don't believe him, but I got my money back so I'll leave this...

    My 8 year old loves my modded 580s

    Great looking headphones. I'm loving that everything is black. I've been tempted to paint the HD580 headband black to make everything black but it looks like I can just use a beyer dt770 headband to complete the black look. That is a dt770 headband, right?

    What has GRADO done to me?

    My first real headphone was the SR80 and ever since then I became a Grado-boy. When I use my HD580, I think about my Grados. However, I do love my HD580 for jazz and classical but for everything else Grado does it for me.

    Headphone amp for around 50 bucks

    Check out the huge portable amp review thread. However most will be out of your budget. A few will be in your budget and a used Mini^3 will be the best one.

    Grado SR60 vs Sennheiser HD485

    If you stretch the headband a little bit it will alleviate most of the discomfort. I can wear my MS2 for a few hours with no discomfort, although I never wore them for up to 7-8 hours like the OP would want to. And the MS2 is heavier than the SR60. The comfort is really hit or miss with people.

    Something different than the Sennheisers?

    Go for a Grado if you want a very different sound from the Sennheiser line.

    Alessandro MS2i retailers... where?

    I believe Alessandro is the only authorized dealer of the Alessandro series. However you can try the FS section for a used pair. I know Headphonic sells it also but I never purchased from there.

    Best Ripper For Non-Expert

    I haven't used EAC in a very long time but it is the most accurate of all the rippers you listed. I don't know easy it would be to set it up to rip into FLAC because I ripped my CDs to mp3.

    I have bad luck with headphones (breaking)

    You can fix the D2000s easily from what I have read. I use to own the D2000 but traded it and it has been reported a few times that the earcup falls off even when the headphone is taken care of well. Maybe someone with experience on how to fix it will chime in or you can just do a search.
