and there's always harvey's. J&R has senns at the wall of headphones, but it's always messed up. sometimes if you find a salesperson nice enough, they'll let you plug it into your portable.

B&H's website shows they have Beyer 770's and 990's "In Stock", for only ~$145, but the spec sheet says they are the older 600ohm versions. Dang!

Stereo Connection on Broadway has some Grados and I think I saw some Beyers, but I don't recall Sennheiser. We really need to get a NY meet happening.

(WARNING: DO not go into B&H with an empty credit card. I like that store :) )

I wouldn't bother with J&R, as their soundboard is usually messed up and not a good place to audition Senns. When I was in Harvey's (on 45th) a couple of months ago, they had several Senns available to listen to, but the only Grados they had were the 125s even though they carry the whole Grado line.

Not only that, but the "headphone guy" at that Harvey is a total ass and the setup is downright awful (mp3 of some instrumental track -- and you can't even adjust the volume).
