I love my HD280, but they make me SWEAT after having them on for awhile. I fly twice a week and every flight (2.5hr ) using the HD280 my ear area is sweaty.

The p5 is nice and "small" and has great sound, but pretty pricey.
The hd 380's have a lot more room in the cup, which I find helps a lot. They're still completely closed, but its not right on your ear.

I wear them 5 days a week for 8 hours.

They aren't superior, it's just a different sound that many people prefer. Some headphones work a lot better with tube amps, some work better with solid state.

Who is Jon? To me it looks like you were getting trolled by a noob .

BTW audiophile actually (literally) means someone who loves sound, but we know what you meant . I take it to mean someone who loves music rather than the guy with the most expensive gear.

Just my .

Vacuum tubes aren't technically superior.

To be EXTREMELY general, solid state amps are more neutral and analytical, while tubes are warmer and more "euphonic".

Tubes are generally more expensive.

It all comes down to personal tastes.
