Gerbil, I would upgrade the dac.  Grado is very sensitive to crappy source.  Also the 225s would be a lot better than the 80s with bass and dynamics.  If you go to another headphone the d2000 would be a good possibility.  I would avoid the AKG Q701 they just don't do ROCK all that well and require tons of amping.

thanks a lot!
though, after a 47$ shipping cost and an extra 16% Israeli tax, they would be a bit too much to spend on. How does the "little brother" HE-300 compare? is it on par with the rest i stated? It's more similar in price..


No. Different driver and technology. The HE-500, 400 and HE-6 are all of the same 'family'. The HE-300 is not.
