And my Koss Porta Pro are breaking down again for the 3rd time. I kept the receipt this time, wether they will repair it or not, it will be the last time I purchase something from them.

Now if I could only find a good extension cable for my Shure SE210.

I have the same ones. They actually sound really decent for the price.

I had these for a good while. They sounded pretty decent and looked stylish but that plastic headband with no padding... killed my head after awhile. Had to sell it.

I use a Nikon D7000 with a flash and a Nikon prime lens, mostly using daylight. And some editing of course. Almost any current camera can achieve this, but you need to know which settings to shoot with.

i constantly wear a fedora, so that doesn't bother me. I have had mine for about a year now, so the pads are tan... I wish i would of bought black, but i got these from a best buy gift card i won last year, so no loss.

Klipsch Image Ones.

Good for their usual retail price (~£100), even better as part of the Amazon Black Friday deals (~£55)

I like them, though it's taking a while to get used to on-ear pair.

If they didn't show up in the sales, I probably would've gone for the Bowers and Wilkins P5s or perhaps even the Sennheiser Momentum.

This year, I bought the B & W P5s when heading abroad and find them excellent; beautifully designed, exceedingly comfortable, surprisingly portable and provide an excellent listening experience. Best headphones I have ever bought.

Actually, I also bought the B & W P3s earlier in the summer, and am very happy with them; they are very portable (and fold in on themselves very nicely), very comfortable, and very, very good.
