I haven't been following this thread, but the B&W P5 are supposed to be really really awesome!! Congratulations.

I posted this in the Purchases thread, but I just bought a pair of Phiaton Moderna MS-400 headphones.



Review.
Another review from Head-fi.

I got them because they're supposed to be easy to drive and still sound good un-amped. I could have bought them in all-black, but the red pair are less boring!! I was also considering:
-Denon D510r (includes iPhone remote, but I thought the sound quality wasn't close to being "best in class")
- Klipsch Image One (supposedly has overwhelming bass, recessed mids, and not particularly good treble)
- Shure SRH-750 and 840 (both are too big)
- Beyerdynamics t50p (was in serious consideration, but some reviews have said the bass is good, and some say it's not enough!).

I would have liked the P5s, but I don't have the money!! Also, the hardshell case included with the Phiatons, and their foldability, make them more portable.




I also bought a pair of Denon C560r in-ears. I bought the same pair 6 months ago, but I lost them. As far as I know, they're one of the best "iPhone" IEMs (i.e. includes remote control) on the market.

Saw these in store and I must admit they are really nice. Made in Germany right?

Yes, made in Germany. They are very nice closed headphones. I prefer open style for sound quality but these are great for using at the office.

No problem, do share your thoughts on them after you test them out. Lots of people hate on them for no reason lol.

Glorious cans the 650s are. What are you using to power them?

I know they are not the best quality sound, but remember I'm 63yrs old and just happy to hear anything.

When our Sharper Image store closed 2 years ago I got a pair of these at a huge discount, paid about $20 for them.

Workout headphones= Apple IEMs
Out and about trying to be inconspicuous and don't want to hear anyone= 3+ year Shure SE IEMs
Bought purely (90%) for aesthetics and because the price was too good to pass up = infamous Beats by Dre Studio
When I need more powaah, which is all the time = 18V CMOY RA1 JRC4556 wintergreen HAMP
I miss my hd555s, but had to permanently loan them out to my brother since his broke.

I just picked up a pair of K430's from AKG (mainly for using with the iPad Djay app). Suitably loud, with a nice 'big' sound.
Until about a week ago I never even knew there were proper headphones out there which didn't have the big 1/4" plug on the end!

Cheap as all get out, I know! But for what I do right now they work...

Here they are cheap in all their glory, but they get the job done for me for now.

I think the Woo Audio is overkill for the phones you have. regardless, still a ridiculous setup. not entirely sure how much juice the D7000 needs though.

Grado sr-80i's and they are amazing better than any headphones that cost 5 times as much! I totally recommend them
