Hell yeah, I move into my new apt. at school sometime in August, you are free to drive up for whatever weekend (except for late Sept. friend is getting married).

Drinking/headphones/speakers will be a guarantee .

What would you recommend for a complete newbie?

I'm just looking for something very comfortable that produces good sound. My current headset is so painful even after only 30 minutes.

I don't really need an amazing headset or anything, because I'm using onboard sound.

Don't need a microphone headset either.

The Sennheiser HD201 is a nice, inexpensive step into the world of decent headphones.

I've been away for about a week, just listening to music through my new Audio-gd Compass! The sound is magnificent when paired with my Denon D2000's and Grado 325i's!

Anyway, some guy is interested in trading his HD580's with HD650 drivers and HD600 grills for my 325i's. I originally wanted to have two headphones which had completely different sound, but I find the 325i's to be not as different as I'd like from the D2000's. Would it be wise to go with the HD650 drivers for this different sound? Will this sound be good when paired with my Compass? Thanks!

Here's a picture of my setup if anyone's interested:

Current headphones: Sennheiser 595, Grado Sr80, sennheiser mx500, jvc gumy, shure se110(the shures are technically my brothers, but meh)

No amp for now

future setup: Sennheiser hd600, Zero amp/dac, and I'll probably get astro a40's to do a review on them. Might as well get the package that comes with the headset and mixamp.

Updated my headphones list again!

instead of;
jpw007 (HD555, ATH-ES7, ATH-AD900)

should now be

jpw007 (HD555, ATH-ES7, ATH-AD900, DT250, RE0)

Got myself some Beyerdynamic DT250's and some Headdirect RE0's. Though the RE0's are iems so they probably didnt qualify.

just got back from working at a country music festival...... good thing i was situated across from the "rock" stage. got to see Bif Naked play, and i heard the Mudmen play twice (work held me from seeing them.) though its clear that the sound tech's dont know what tight bass is. they had the kick tuned like a fart cannon... argh! take a fart with a large diamiter mic eq off everything above 200hz give it a 100hz bump and theres the kick. grrr. but yea lots of drunk ppl there, worked 4 days doing 14+ hours so it was an interesting experience.
