If they're so good, and you only appear to own open models, why are you selling them?
I hate supraaurals tbh. Just want some semi decent IEM's instead. Or maybe some A900's or something equivalent

::Update::
My headphones now include, and only include:
- ATH-AD700, HD 212 Pro, ATH-WM5

Please take out the CX-55, CX-500 and the ATH-ES7. (IEM's + Fake ES7's)

Thank you.

I'm listening to my newly acquired HD 212 Pro's and they sound great!
iPod >> Fiio E5 >> HD 212 Pro
Listening to "Voodoo People" by The Prodigy and it sounds... well great.
Treble is apparent, mids are smooth defined, bass is punchy without drowning out Treble and mids.

A very nice purchase IMO. (Only cost me $50 AUD)

One question: Why is there a Bose and Skullcandy corner?

Anyway, can I join the club?

My setup:

Full-size:

Beyerdynamic DT880 (600 ohm) (there are at least 4 different modern versions of the DT880, this being the best sounding one) w/ Rockhopper M^3 headphone amp

Audio-Technica AD700 (gaming purposes)

Asus Essence STX >>> Rockhopper M^3 >>> Beyerdynamic DT880 (600 ohm) is the main setup.

What can to buy guys?

I'm looking at some new cans.

Akg 701
Sennheiser 650
Sennheiser 600
Beyerdynamic DT 880

I'm leaning away from Grado... I think they're beautiful, but I dont like the on-ear design... I want full cup coverage.

They'll be used mostly for vinyl, movies, and gaming... not much on-the-go listening.

Could possibly buy a Creek headphone amp too, but otherwise they'll be powered by an older Sony EX-GX series receiver (flagship model from mid-90's)
If I don't buy an amp, I'll build a cmoy for them in due time.

I'm open to other suggestions as well. have at it.

Budget is under $500 i'm thinking... (amazon pricing, not MSRP) but spending less is fine too. The cheaper the headphones, the better the amplification.

Thanks kiddos

they are all great cans. Try to listen to all and then choose. Had I to choose right now I would go for HD600 or k701.

For an amp get a millet hybrid mini max, or if budget won't allow the starving student will work for now.

I'd rather get a decent doesn't need to be amped headphone (e.g. Denon D5000/ recabled D2000 for that price range) than underamp one tbh.

Just modded my HD201's

Old broken Creative HS-100's....but the mic still worked

Melted a hole through the side with a hot screwdriver lol

Pushed wiring through and screwed the mic in so that it would swivel like it did on the HS-100's

So I can have it either beside my month or turned up so its out of the way
