I ordered my Nano last night, should have it later this week.

A couple of posters in this thread have recommended the Senn HD555s. They look a bit big to use when walking around in public - are they?!? I've only seen pictures, but they look like full sized cans to me, not something I personally would have thought were for portable use.

I want the whole world to look at me! lol, you can see comparison pics here. Do you have a store near you? You can kill to birds while you're at it and try different ones as well as the expensive ones they have (they don't need to know whether you can afford it

I guess I'll try the Nano with the portable headphones I already have; if I don't like the set up, I'll start researching headphones again. Such a pity to have to buy more headphones.

Anyone know if the 2nd gen nano's SQ works well with Shure E500? Does the 2nd gen nano have improved headphone output compared to the 1st gen?

I remeber that there were some distortion with the 1st gen nano when using my E4, hopefully there won't be any distortion issue with the 2nd gen.

I have no self control. I went ahead and ordered a Hornet amp. as well as v-moda Vibes, despite all of the advice here to listen with the headphones/amps I already have before buying something different. I also purchased an ALO line out dock.
