Oh, and I own two pairs. REALLY great cans. In fact, as monitors, you need a genuine pair of Audio Technica ATH 900+(not the shitty 910s) to get the same clarity(which I believe are now the ATH 1000X), and if you want something with more range, you need Sennys in the $200 range, but not as clear IMO. Some people may suggest Grados, and they are good too, but I like my grados with an amp. Ampless Grados are pretty average.
