    Hypothetically speaking, do you think it's realistic that Sennheiser will release the hd800 successor within the next 2-3 years or would it be longer?

    HD5: silver, black or red?

    Is it possible to use a remote while using an amp? Something like DAP -> remote -> amp -> headphones? If you switch the hd5 to line-out mode will this still work?

    iAudio X5 vs Sony HD5

    I'm in the exact same situation Sanity. I'm really tempted to wait for the karma 2 ~ September apparently but it may be later. I've seen the 30 gig sony for about $30 more.

    Amp/dap question

    When people talk about the sonic character of a DAP (eg. "Sony DAPs are bassy") does that quality still apply when listening to the DAP through the line out wth an amp? ie. When using the line out does a DAP's character become irrelevant?

    I think ive decided! Comments please =P

    People say that amps compliment the headphones (not the other way around) and you're planning to spend more on the amp than the headphones. Also, some headphones don't benefit from amping all that much. I'm not sure about those Sonys but it could be something to think about if you haven't already.
