Whether he chooses to buy a Ferrari or STI is up to him
Lol so "Too Long; DID not read" is what you were going for. Naturally I saw "Too Long; DO not read". Mah bad!

LOL!! That would be the first time I've ever seen TL;DNR used for DO NOT READ.

It's brilliant really. I'd be giving the OP useful information there! LOL!

Haha, I do really appreciate the suggestions guys! Now that a few more players joined in the conversation, I have some higher quality stuff to check out here too . I would like to to spend $500-700 if I can, because then I know I'm getting something quality. I don't think I said anywhere that "less money was better," on the contrary, I kept saying "that's only $xxx though.. are you sure that's highest quality?"

In any case, I do appreciate everyone's input regardless. I have some research to do here based on the suggestions, but to answer simply: I definitely want the Ferrari.

Good man.

Also, it's EXCELLENT that you're going to do your own research after hearing the recommendations. When you're dropping that kind of cash, you better like what you're getting. I would head to local Hi-Fi stores and try the headphones out.

You just gonna' buy an F430 cuz it looks pretty, or you gonna' test drive it?

Also, when you're dropping this kind of cash, know that you're receiving some of the best audio ANY of us have. So you'll be listening to clearer, better, and longer lasting sound than most of us. It's really amazing when someone gets a budget like this on audio. Makes me tear up. ~tear~

Also, quality is really what you're getting and your HD600/50s are unlike other PC equipment. They don't get dated. They'll only really get better with time as they burn in etc until the one day many years down the road when they finally give out.
