Is the owner's wife called Jerry?
Interesting story. Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

Good ol" Murphy.
No, Jerry is the "J" in JH Audio. That was my mistake. It should have read, "Caleb said he would have Jerry's wife, call me." I have her forgotten name on a voicemail that she left (to which I will not respond). As you might guess, I am pissed, so much so that" and the Woo tube amp combination. Is reported to be the world's best headphone sound but it's a lot of money and probably more than I can rationalize.

I have ordered the best Grado, Sennheiser and Denon headphones, found them uncomfortable and returned them.

You didn't happen to notice that Irvin's iem's were a completely different design to yours? Or that they were terminated for a JH3 A amp? Hope you remembered to clean your ears.

Haha Irvin joins the party and is pissed as well! Just kidding.
Did you really find the HD-800 and D8000 that uncomfortable? Don't go for the Audeze's then or any other planar headphone as they tend to be quite weighty. I would suggest the SRH-1840 or HD-555/598/600/650 for comfort alone.
I have tried many headphones and few are as comfortable as my old HD-555. Too bad they don't sound like a LCD-3.

Irvin59 - Are you that Irvin? I didn't pay much attention to the IEM's but did notice the different termination.
Yes, my ears were clean. They had to be. I clean them every few months whether they need it or not.
Sweeden - Irvin has a right to be pissed.
I found the 800's and the Sennheiser HD 600's, which I ordered instead of the HD650's, to be uncomfortable.
Are the D8000's Ultraforce 8000's? If so, I am unwilling to sacrifice sound qulaity for noise cancelation. I could find no "D8000" headphones.
The Shure SRH-1840's are interesting - good reviews and supposedly very comfortable. I may order a pair. Thank you for the suggestion.
Where can I get pink, burn-in noise, something that can played through my computer with a DAC/Amp or my Onkyo TX NR-808 receiver or Blu-ray? I will need something that will break-in the headphones with repeated over-night sessions. Is there a CD with pink noise that plays continuously without the need to reload?
If it would be easier to communicate by email, mine is rollin@stockfitting.com.

i would advise against continuus burn-in with pink noise (or other 'noise' for that matter) overnights. there are instances where people have irreparably damaged their headphones doing so. i would suggest repeated 20 min burn & 10 min rest sessions for 24-hr at no louder than your normal listening volume (just imho).
