    You can go for the 555 or 595 then. Second hand HD600s aren't as expensive either usually.

    My in-ears are the Sennheiser CX400 II. Love them, have used them for the last three years I guess, no issues. My music player is an iPhone.

    For pure music listening, I use Grado SR-80's. I've had the same pair for twelve years. For playing guitar through headphones, I use Audio-Technica ATH-M2X's. I have five pairs of them scattered around. For mobile use, I use Denon AH-C551 earbuds.

    I'm a Sennheiser lifer. I owned those for two years or so. I agree, incredibly uncomfortable, and the sound isn't as good as the hype would lead you to believe. I'm very glad I upgraded from those, especially because the headband started cracking after a months use. By the end they were held together with black duct tape, epoxy glue, and wired up with speaker wire. I think I threw them in the trash when I moved.

    For home listening: Sennheiser HD 600 with PPA v1 amp.

    Recording/Tracking: AKG K271 mkII re-cabled with Canare mini star quad.

    Same driver as the KSC-35, only on a headband instead of ear clips. Great sound for the money.

    Yeah, now that must sound nice.

    Bet you're not listening to 128 Mp3s through that

    Sony MDR-D333 with a nice Ipod

    I really regret getting these for almost 100$
    - They need something on the plastic that goes on your head, it's really not that confortable.
    - The sound is pretty great I have to admit, but a bit more bass wouldn't have killed.
    - They don't really look cool on a head.
    - I HAVE TO BASH THEM SO THE RIGHT EAR WORKS! (And I've only been using it a home with my guitar and few times on the way to school (6 or 7 months of use)
    - The retractable cable is a good idea, but damn it kills your ear when you shake it... You hear the cable moving into the plastic ear cover. Really annoying. Plus, the button to retract the cable is Very sensitive and puts the cable under tension often.

    The only points I really like are the fact that it is compact and the ear foaming being quite confortable and isolating.

    These just arrived, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50s. Our FOH guy had a pair on a recent tour and I commandeered them for a road trip and really liked them. Sturdy bottom end, very comfortable, and seem like they will work well for tracking.

    I have a pair of Sennheiser HD500s (but with velour earpads) and a pair of AKG K272 HDs.
