Well... it uses a Penguin Mint case, but I'm not sure if it's the PenguinAmp you're talking about.

It's my first amp, and I'm not expecting too much from it, but hopefully it'll be a good performer. And like I said, $27...

If you were looking for closed cans around $100 I'd avoid the HD-280. I think they're pretty flat and lifeless. (Accurate, but just not too fun to listen to. And this comes from a guy who loves Etymotic!)

Unless you absolutely had to buy from Newegg, I would give some thought to the Equation Audio RP-21. They leak almost no sound when on your head, and for your gangsta rap they'll have a plenty full low-end. (I'm also a closet Bob Dylan nut. He sounds plenty fine on them too.) They have a pretty flat midrange, but still handle vocals with pretty good accuracy. Before you've got a few hundred hours on them I thought the treble was, for lack of a better word, ugh ... But, after I got about 200 hours on them it started to open up and now that I've got about 300 horus on them it's got a real sparkle to it. (Don't know if it's my ears burning in or the cans, but either way I like it!)

For cheaper closed cans, I would highly recommend the AKG K172HD or K272HD. The 272 will have more bass than the 172.

Both are vastly superior to the A500,700,900.

The open versions are the K142HD and K242HD, and would be in place of the open lower end ATs (AD500,700,900).

They're both high end headphone companies... why shouldn't they be compared?

You routinely declare AT better than Sennheiser, this is the same thing.

I saw the RP-21's in your FS thread and was thinking about them. How does the headset on those feel? I need something that goes around my ear instead of laying on it. A friend had a set of Pioneer HDJ-1000's and loved them, and then moved to sen HD25's. I would have bought the HDJ-1000's last night, but they have a tighter feel then what I want.
