BTW:

I'm borrowing Shelly's Shure SRH840's for a couple weeks (will end up buying them from her) ... and I'm really impressed. The isolation is very very good (they are closed cans) and they are typical Shure accuracy across the board. Definitely recognizable as a "pro" tool/headphone. For the money that these can be had for ... I think it's a ridiculous value:

The Shure's have been making some waves in the pro circuit, too - I know a couple engineers that have traded in thier old standby of the Sony MDR-V6 in favor of them (and that really says something ). I'm halfway considering picking up a pair if I thought I could cover the cost with my Beyer's.

At 150 bucks new? (you might have to search) ... who's complaining?

Do it! Pretty outstanding headphones.

Just bought this.

http://www.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls....-Ultra-Jitter-

I'm guessing at best it'll be like 5-10% improvement, but I'm so happy with the Parasound that at this point, I'd rather put upgrades into the source section instead of spending another $4-500 to move up the ladder for an Assemblage DAC (if I could even find it to begin with).

Yes, I know that jitter and its theoretical nature is debatable. I believe I can and have heard it in the past on the multiple occasions when I've tried to eliminate my Marantz cdp as a transport in favor of the pc and my PS3. Every time the digital output on the cdp sounds much better, and I know I'm not imagining it because my roommate has listened and agreed with me as well. I guess adding this into the path will give me a final answer as to whether or not jitter is the problem for me.

HD280s are pretty good - you'll appreciate the isolation if you're working in a live environment.

Pulled the trigger last night on a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50. Can't wait until Thursday. They sound really promising (no pun intended), and will most likely show my TriPorts to the closet. Hopefully I have no problems with the pleather pads (I haven't had problems with other pleather pads and cups), but I might swap them for the velour ones off of the DT-250 anyway. Velour feels so nice

MS1i's came in about a week ago and I've been enjoying them immensely.

A couple of things I've noticed so far:
1. They're quite comfortable to my head.
2. They sound fantastic
3. They're a lot bigger than I thought they would be.
