    Suggestions for a warm open overhead all around headphone that doesn't require amp?

    Looking to get a over head open headphone around $200-250 that's also warm and fun. I don't want the soundstage to be too wide and don't plan on getting an amp so I'm looking for a headphone that doesn't need an amp. Anyone have any suggestions for me to look at?

    Setting the volume on computer or player

    So I got the JDS CD5 and it recommended that I set the player to 75% volume on my laptop, which I assume is itunes. Does this actually do anything or would setting it to 100% volume on itunes work better and then control volume through my amp?

    W3, IE80s, or UE900s?

    I'm hoping one of these will go on a deal soon during cyber monday and was trying to figure out which one to get.   I've realized that I'm not very good at deciding on IEMs based on their pros, so I was wondering instead, what are the cons of each of these products that might make a product a...

    Difference between IEMs and Headphones in sound quality?

    I'm sure this question has been asked many times before, but I've been having trouble finding answers that go into specifics. Do headphones have better sound quality (considering equal value)? Do IEMs always isolate better? etc.

    Protecting cables and strain relief?

    Going to get my x10s delivered soon, but since they seem to have a reputation for being a little flimsy, I was wondering how people protect the cables and if it would have any affect on the sound. Will regular old tape at the strain relief be sufficient or do people have another way of handling...

    crossfade v-moda for $80 or m-80 for $150? (also earphone " Klipsch Image X10 question)

    I was going to get the M-80, but amazon just released their deals and those two have pretty great deals. I don't have a single "hi-fi" earphone or headphone, so I was wondering if the improvements of the m-80 are worth paying the extra $70+  for. Also since the x10s are incredibly "relatively"...
