- I would say my head is adverage size maybe a little on the long side as I'm pretty tall. I'm thinking closed circumference
- I listen to anything from classical to jazz, to rock, all the way to pantera and slayer type bands.
- The 200 dollar budget is a ball park so I can go higher or lower depending
- I listen to music daily and I also use the m45 with my roland td-10 for home practice
- Definitely prefer accurate bass
- Not overly concerned on looks, function is most important to me. As long as the cans don't have some weird color scheme like pink or hot rod green,lol
- mostly indoors, but occasionally outside on the porch when the weather is warm enough
- I don't have an amplifier, DAC, or sound card. Will mostly likely be buying a highish end usb sound card, and DAC and amp to follow eventually.
- I have direct ripped audio from audio disk that is in FLAC format
- I have a 32 iphone that I use for music on the go, but not concerned with super high end sound on the fly, so i use regular ear buds for that.

I tentatively recommend the following:

- Grados SR225i, around $200
- AKG K550, under $250
- Audio-Technica AD900, just under $200
* If you are willing to consider used headphones, your choices further increase

There are probably a few more, but off the top of my head from personal experience, I suggest looking into those 3. They don't require immediate amping and are mostly efficient enough to be enjoyed being plugged straight into a portable player (tad iffy on the AD900). That said, as for which amp/dac to get, that also depends on your budget. A cheapo Asus Xonar DG will serve fine for interim casual listening and can be found under $20. I personally use a JDS ODAC and Schiit Lyr, but not everyone wants a tube amp. If you prefer solid state, I advise either the Magni or O2 for a budget amp and the Modi or ODAC for a budget DAC.

Great stuff I'll look into those, maybe I can find a good deal on ebay or local if I get lucky. I'll to do a decent amopunt of research on the amps and such. I don't want to break the bank and there are a lot of options. Looking to spend more than 20.00 but less than 250.

I appreciate your help +rep

I'm jelly. I love that ENTIRE album. It was a godsend. It's so much of a godsend that buying the newest edition, after owning the original edition is nearly worth it.

I have a set of Samson SR850's and I must say I LOVE the sound of these but the earcups are god awful. They hurt really bad within a good 30 mins of use. I guess its about time to replace the cups or even the headset in general. Most of the Velour cups are 40.00 so im not sure if I would rather replace the cups or buy a diff set of headphones.

DG would be sufficient. What is his budget?

It is such a great album isn't it! Man I cannot get enough of this bass texture from the LCD-2's.
