If you are thinking of going with the 325i's might I suggest saving some cash and going with the SR225s instead. Many people prefer the SR225s over the 325i's because of the harsh highs and the odd weight to the cans.

The SR225s don't need an amp to sound great. They are one set of cans that sound wonderful directly from the source.

You can pick up a used pair of 225s for around $150 used/$200 new. With the remaining funds you could grab a nice DAC.

OC3D was back in the day spammed by it's owner on the site (SPHERE) and was banned. Since then it has been censored.

Same with alot of other members... BPC by Crash, ItsLasher and jrabb1920 (both (Crash and Lasher) are past mods, Crash was actually on the next-highest position of mods. Goes to show how corrupt some people CAN be, jrabb was the highest rank folder for a while too)

And now PMPC by iampoor and R3ap3r.

All long stories, but if you want to know more, PM me. I don't like (and I'm sure mods don't either) speaking about this in public.

Ok well i made s slight detour in my headphone purchase...for my gaming/movie i got these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826109153

my neighbor has these as well he let me borrow them for a couple of hours and i just fell in love. i listened to a chill out album i had and some jazz tunes oh man it totally blew away my cheapo $20 sony that i've had forever.

i'm still looking for my all out audio headphones. i have a small head...XD so no audiotechnicas in my future. but the more i read about the grado's and i just found some nice cans on ebay it's looking good.

Is your new budget $300 - $119 for the cans you just bought?

Ronin - you're looking to use both HD280's and a pair of Grado's? It's a pretty decent idea, but for a starting rig you might be better off just sticking with one pair and making upgrades on your source instead.

FallenAngel - I need the Marshmallows and K81DJ's marked as "previously owned", or whatever you see fit. Don't worry, I'll be adding at least one more pair to my current collection in due time .
