    Well I listen mainly to Prog influenced music and I have been using Grado SR125e's. However I have come to the conclusion that I do not like headphones so they are now on ebay. Each to their own as always.

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    I tried and failed to sell some JBL Synchros 700S cans a few months ago for a mere pittance (35 for 200 cans) - superb on prog and rock.
    No-one wanted them - I gave them away in the end!

    Well...I've been trying quite a few from my collection and my current favourite has to be the Ultrasone HFi 580 - Locomotive Breath, Mocking Bird etc sound stunning through them - rest of chain is vortexbox, MF V-Link 192, Bushmaster DAC and Capella Headphone Amp.

    A really 'big' spacious sound, the S logic sees to that, and the nice big driver gives solid good bass.

    I have the more expensive HFi 780 as well, not so good for Prog etc, bass is less and treble more - but fantastic for simpler acoustic stuff.

    I can wholeheartedly recommend beyerdynamic dt770 pro for prog/rock listening very detailed with superb low end reach and really really comfortable I can have a 3 to 4 hour listening session no problem. I don't think you would be disappointed Stevie boy.
