    As I recommended to Jerry, fostex t50rp, he loves them and you'd save yourself a few quid too.

    Tim, I'd be happy to loan you .... B&O H6, AKG 551 (which are the same as 550 & 553).
    No you can't borrow the Fostex, I use them pretty much every day!

    A few. Clive had a pair for sale here. Dunno if they sold. He liked them too but had the bigger ones too. One thing is imo they need a amp to get best out of

    Hmm you know you could even get a used STAX Basic or Lambda setup if you are interested in vocals. They rule in this area, even the bottom of the range bargains will kill expensive dynamic or planar headphones for nuance and air.
