After looking at them, and a couple reviews, the, Magni and Modi look very nice. Would either benefit my DT 770's or SR325i's? I already have a decent sound card (or so I'd like to think). Any real reason for it?

Wow... That red one is drool worthy. That shade of red reminds me of a bowling ball.

yeah the Fostex TH900 is a $1700-2000 headphone.

the chambers are made out of Japanese Cherry Birch. Urushi lacquer, bordeaux paint and platinum foiled logo.

the TH600 is hopefully going to be $1000-1200 and the chambers are made out of magnesium.

There is a shop here in guildford, (guildford is actually a small-ish town, so that's why it is shocking) that has both HD800's and the fostex's in their window shop.
Yup - 99% of people walking by, have no idea that those two combined could buy you a decent car.

If they were beats however people would attempt to steal them LOL.

I agreed with the owner to go there and demo them and the D7K's he has got there smile.gif!
Just waiting for the right time for myself to go there

Posted this in a separate thread earlier, but did not get as much feedback as I would like before making a purchase:

So I recently moved back into my own office again and no longer need to worry about leaking sound out and bothering other people. This also means more time for music listening! I am trying to figure out which one of the headphones I should get:

- Sennheiser HD650
- HiFiMAN HE400

I have had opportunity to audition the Sennheiser and I really like the sound. At the same time I have also read great things about the HE400. My current source setup is FLAC/MP3 in Foobar to ODAC to O2 amp, though I do plan on upgrading to a tube amp eventually in the near future (baby steps). I primarily listen to classical, soul, rock, and hip hop (old school type not Lil Wayne and Soldier Boy or however he spells his name), though I prefer my bass more tight and controlled as opposed to super boomy. I would also like to use these for gaming if they are good for that as well. If anyone can provide me some personal feedback about either (preferably both) cans, I would be greatly appreciative!

I have looked extensively on head-fi.org and it seems more people lean towards the HD650 for how smooth it sounds and the fact that it is more forgiving on lower quality audio tracks.

The DJ feature's also make them very easy to travel with. I got them for "out n about" can's but ended up using them as my primary listening set up.

On another note: I recently ordered all the parts to build a JDSLab's CMoyBB. Mostly I did it just for giggle's and because it look's pretty nifty. The only thing I messed up is the LED's don't light up for some reason(possible heat damage due to my crap-tastic soldering skills) but other than that it actually work's great! Sound is nice for such a cheap DIY. I opted for an external Bass Boost Switch over internal and a single 9v, Thing can make some noise I tell ya what! Fun project. Still need to find a wall wart to charge the silly thing though.

Just wanted to say I ended up getting the Premium Hi-Fi DJ Style Over-the-Ear Pro Headphone from Monoprice. Thanks for the recommendation. All my friends love them and say it was my best purchase/deal ever! Only for 20 bucks too! Thanks!
