I haven't been able to find much on the T5, but the form factor seems very appealing, and I've heard great things about iBasso products. Bass seems to draw back a bit with the T5 while still maintaining a warm sound, which may be good for the W3s. SO MANY CHOICES.

Ugh~ just tried my friends Beyer DT-990 600 Premiums on my computer. I am so blown away by how awesome those headphones are.

They make me put on my Senn 595s and get depressed. They're even just as comfortable~ I'm just, blah! I can't believe how good they are. They're amazing everywhere.

I was really curious about the dt990s. I got the dt880s instead, have to say, i was rather disappointed. The dt990s seem so much more interesting SS-wise, the dt880s were far too neutral and dull. Also, beyers are RIDICULOUSLY comfy, right?

I mean, if you compare them to Dr. Dre's , Dr Dre is completely trash.

I mean, Seinheisers are much better than All the above. but seriously, I got the aviators for free, so its cool beans.

If i get seinnheisers for free, that would make my day.

oh + I have Seinnheisers HDR -45 , and Headset (w/broken Mic)

I can tell the difference between 256 bit - 328 - 512 bit audio. :/ can you?

If I hear something below 256 , i barf a little.

(( sorry if this sounds dry, its 3 AM. ))

Sennheisers aren't the all encompassing platonic ideal of a headphone. They, like many others, have their flaws.
328 isnt really a thing, i think you mean 320 kbps mp3. I have no idea what file format you're getting 512 kbps out of.
And you can really tell between 256 and 320 off of onboard sound on Aviators? I find that difficult to believe.

Super comfy. I mean, the HD595s are comfy too~ but the Beyer's are right up there with them. The sound though~ the DT990s are anything but dull. Recessed mids seems to be right, but~ not by much. It's just the highs and lows are so damn sharp and present it can sound that way. I love my headphones but if I could do it again, I'd go with the Beyers. Those feel like a real audiophile piece of equipment.

I really like the feel of them too, they're weighty, but don't feel heavy on your head.

Someday ill pick myself up some 990s and see what all the fuss is about, but as for now, i'm set on some ultrasones

So I found out about the Fischer Audio FA-003s recently. Very new so not many reviews yet, but oh man they look great.
