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

    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.
