people here seem to be into the kind of music you'd listen to through headphones, and i have had a hard time finding a decent pair. most have crappy sound compared to the Sennheisers I got for $160 in 1989. even the heavy DJ ones. can anyone recommend a good set of geeky audiophile headphones? i'm poor, but i'll use them for a decade so money isn't a big concern. thanks.

koss' portapros are very, very good. they are kinda old-school 80s looking in a good way, i think. here's a link to some user reviews http://www.epinions.com/Koss_PortaPro_Headphones_Headphones also- they're on sale right now at amazon for like 38 bucks or something. that's expensive to me. they're worth it

there was a topic on headphones on the stereolab message board. there was this great link to this web site devoted soley to headphones. i was amazing beyond compare, they ranked them and everything based on what you were going to use them for, etc.

i don't know the site off of my head but i'll find it and post it for you.


found it...hope it helps http://headroom.headphone.com/layout.php
