Just made the order! hd555 on its way, and right after receiving
order notice the hd555s has gone out of stock, phew! barely made it:
headphone.
(chose these coz its new and free shipping towards those better phones
that are 2nd hand and needs amps for full advantage of their abilities
[amazon/e-bay].




as i go through the forums i always find 3 things constant:


#1."Thou shalt not get headset/5.1 gaming headset, stereo headphones
with good sound staging(audiophile term) is as good even better+ a clip-on mic."

#2. "Thou shalt read and maybe choose amongst these:
http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f4/hea...-guide-271258/

#3. "Thy budget will go down the drain because THIS is only
the beginning, CURSE YOU OVERCLOCKERS.NET AUDIO FORUMS!!!
(kneels and then shakes fists towards the heavens):swearing: " jjk




---And yeah, i stretched my budget waaaay more, i kept telling myself
it's an investment and that i won't have to buy another $20-40phone
coz it broke or something.

If iv'e gotten more in my budget for them, i'd gotten the
AT A700, beyer770/80 and the hd9xx.


Thanks ya'll ppl and oh yeah, the Egg is having other choice Senns
products on sale+free shipping this month. (hd280pro looked nice too
...i don't work there, ok!?!)

wow, thank you for doing your research, I'm getting tired of telling people of the horrors of 5.1 headsets... and good choice. Good headphones are investments, take care of them and they will last you a life time, compared to the cheesy stock ipod earbuds and the likes, hope you enjoy your investment
