I'd say whichever you use more. If you use them mostly with a mp3 player with a 1/8'' jack it'll be a pain to have a huge 1/4'' adapter sticking out of it. Oh, and the red sleeving looks nice .

I've also been looking at the HD280 pros. I've heard that the bass on these are monstrous, and the mids and highs are -decent- enough to get by in gaming and other non bassy music. However, someone in these forums called them an "over powered bass fart cannon", I'm guessing these might fit the bill?

I've also heard the jvc rx700's are nice and bass heavy with good mids and highs, but not as bass powered as the 280 pros. Any thoughts?

edit: also, would these need an amp?

My experience with the 280 Pros has hardly been what I'd call a "bass fart cannon" - generally, I always found them to have pretty average bass response. Decent headphones, but in the same price bracket I'd much rather have the Equation Audio RP-21. I know there was a lot of flavor-of-the-month hype with them on Head-fi after Skylab liked them, but I feel they were mostly deserving of it, and happen to have markably nice bass. Put some smallish holes in the extra piece of foam between the driver and your ear, and they have nice everything else, too.

Gotcha, what are the rp-21's bass compared to the 202s? Would I need an amp for them also? Er, plus, do you know where they sell them besides amazon? If they are worth it I'll definitely pay $100, but if I can find them cheaper somewhere else that's reputable I'll do that. Thanks!

I recently bought a 10m extension cable for mine so i can listen anywhere in my 'appartment'.

(appartment is in inverted commas because it's really just the floor above my parents house, lol)

Equation follows a (really cool) policy of being fair to all their retailers, small-time or big-time. As a result, you wont find any one place selling the product less than any other place, they simply don't allow it. Personally, I like dealing with FullCompass, but I've got a sales rep with them anyways. Amazon is as good as anywhere else. $89, AFAIK, is the lowest price Equation allows.

I've never done a direct comparison of them to 202s, so I cant comment too much there.
