Those look great Lou! Congrats, and good choice. Btw, don't you have a nice mobile sweet spot? I.E.:cans. I know. No matter how nice the headphones are, it's not the same, but all your work will pay off. Doing good buddy.
I really like this thought as trying to do home theater and stereo in the same room on a budget has become a major issue for me. Hmmmm

Thank euww, thank euww verry much-uh! It was not easy for me. I stressed for days researching choices and narrowing them down. The countdown to trigger-pull was (almost) the worst, as I wondered if some other similar model might be better. But that paled by comparison when the phone rep told me my pick was discontinued. I didn't have a backup! I only had a first choice in two very different quality categories. I was caught unprepared:

"I ran out of gas! I got a flat tire! I didn’t have change for cab fare! I lost my tux at the cleaners! I locked my keys in the car! An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car! There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!" --Jake Blues

So I was instantly and genuinely relieved when they told me a different company picked up the model. In retrospect, I enjoyed learning and shopping. A new day brings a fresh start and the new perspective that buyer's remorse is not on my radar. And of course there's more learning to come as I live with the seats and find out what's to like/not like.

Congrats Lumen, they look great. I too hope to have a nice pair of those one day, until then a big lazy boy will have to do.
And thank you too, Jack! You sound to me as if you're settling. With a La-Z-Boy!? I don't mean to pry, so ignore me if I'm out of line but now I'm curious. Seat back too high? Getting long-in-the-tooth? Just want more of an authentic theater feel?

Yes the seat back is too high and I would like something with an authentic feel. You of course, are spot on. You sat in the big old chair, and I like it because there is room to lounge sideways if i get cramped, its just there is only one and I shant be able to find its exact mate for a double date. Now havin said that, my wife likes to lay on the sleeper sofa and watch movies and we dont really have others over for the big watch so I guess it is not that important.

You single handedly solved my problem. I will purchase some invisible chairs for the invisible guests. :T

My Grado SR60's became lawn fertilizer after my dog ate them :unbelievable:

I now have a pair of B&W P5's I got as part of a trade-in deal. They're used with a portable amp/DAC in the office and on-the-go . They're well-balanced, have deep bass, and are extremely comfortable for hours on end. But they're not accurate enough for my recording needs, because I feel they're voiced far to the warm side of neutral. I don't use them for casual listening, but have toyed with the idea of getting a set for serious listening. I've had my eye on the Sennheiser HD800 for a while now, but a man's gotsa eat sometimes!
