      Then you must send them down and let me audition them for you.

      ^ Boulder monos were very nice, but the SGR gear is better imo. The Cymer SET monos are also excellent, but a completely different sound. I have a prototype version of these at the moment;

      They are in the cupboard at the moment connected to an amp getting a healthy dose of Shostakovitch for break in.

      Great choice for break-in material.

      So, I blew up my DAC and SKC's sending me a new one. But this one, a Firestone Audio USB DAC, seems to double as a head phone amp, so I'm in the market for a new set of ear muffs.

      I want something comfy ~$1k. Any suggestions?

      Big warm sound please.

      Do you mind if your family can still hear what you are playing or do you want total isolation?

      Audio Technica dead tree versions are reportedly very warm sounding..

      ATH-W5000 can be found overseas for easily under $1k..

      Top of the line Denon AH-D7000 cans feature dead tree (mahogany) housings and get a good rap on places like head-fi.org too..

      To answer your question Mikey, I don't really mind if people can hear what I'm listening to. I'm just trying to avoid the old "TURN THAT MUSIC DOWN!"

      Oh yes, I almost forgot. Must have good bass capacity given that I mostly listen to doof doof.

      Thanks Dylan, will check those out.

      Matt there are some Audeze LCD-2 headphones for sales on SNA for under a k. Not sure you will do better bass in a phone.

      Audeze are accepting pre-orders for U$945, so with shipping, I expect they will be about $1050 landed, which is right on budget. Thanks everyone.

      The Grados are long gone.
      The Audeze is the headphones everyone is talking about and if I could bother waiting, I'd get them to try out.
      If you needed a pair of cans that gives great sound in a closed-back system, I would have recommended an Ultrasone Edition 8. Stunning clarity and wholesome bass. They're perfect for your music.

      Ultrasone would be another one to look at - they'll satisfy your bass needs for doof doof.

      My favourite headphones so far are still the Beyerdynamic DT-880's - great soundstage, crisp but not too crisp that it's bright and warm.

      Wouldn't mind trying out some of the Audio Technica range especially for a work pair as they are meant to be very comfortable.

      I'm a fan of the Beyers too, but I've got the DT990s... Just awesome fun to listen too with my taste in music of house, elecronica, prog rock etc..

      Try them out too Matt.. And they'll probably be easier to find and demo in Melbourne than some of the others like the Audeze and Denon..

      I've read a couple of reviews of the Audeze and my only reservations are that they are comfortable, but not super-so, they've got a dodgy bit of foam under the bridge and the cable's too stiff.

      But against that, they sound like a pretty honest set-up with a good range and particularly good bass, so I've put my name on the waiting list, might be three months or so. I can wait.

      The foam they used changed design and looks much better, though I don't know how the old design felt. The stiff cable is an easy fix. Just do what I did and order one of these at the same time;

      What are your impressions of the complete Alo/Audeze combo, Stephen?

      Nice one, although it will blow my budget so I'll try it with the stiff cable and if it's a real PITA I'll get one of those.

      Story was reading well until the Bose PR shill said the company will operate as it always has... Which means the marketing budget will continue to outweigh the R&D budget and their product will continue to be double the price it should be..
