By the way, you can order the replacement VELOUR pads for the Beyerdynamic DT250's and they fit the Sony's perfectly.  Nothing like wearing a pair of V6/7506's with velour padding.  It's the shit.  I find the pleather pads on the Sony's to be a little uncomfortable in comparison. 

Any idea where to order these velour pads, gloco? I have some V6's that are getting old and frayed (had 'em since 94 or 95). I'm also missing a small plastic cover from the back of one ear piece. Any idea where to order parts like that?

Thanks! I guess mine are the V600 -- still the same ear piece as far as I can tell though.

Hey Dennis,  Check your local Radio Shack, locally mine had the Super.Fi 3 Live for 1/2 price ($49).  These are great to monitor at shows with.....  IEM's may not be be for you though.....

yea, good call.
$49 would be very nice for some IEM's for show duties.

as for $100 cans.
i've said this before...i'll say it again.
the stupid Senn HD201's for $20.
I'll put them up against anyones $100 headphones and you tell me.  I plan on buying a pair...and I'll do it and send them to anyone who wants to try them out as I have several all ready.


they are stupidly silly good.
and the "Internet" agrees with me, so that has to mean something.

LMA recordings and what-not


Live music: hauling around a Marshall stack whose output will get squeezed through a single SM57, then mangled by a Guinness-soaked mixer and shoved through suspicious-smelling power amps into a pair of grungy cabinets whose best days were before they left the factory, all of which are under the control of an engineer who would much rather be at home watching television.

At $20 the Sennheisers Nick references are worth a shot, but personally I don't particularly care for them.  I have a pair that are handy when I need some sealed headphones, but I much prefer my Grado SR80s, my Sennheiser PX100s, and even my old Senn HD414s.

Was this a local deal, or is it nationwide?  I'm looking for a pair of decent priced IEMs, and these sound perfect.

I'll raise a hand for the HD280s.  I have some AKG 240's that I sometimes use for mixdown - I love 'em for that.  But for tracking at shows... isolation is #1 for me.  Without that, you have to crank vol in the cans... 7506's do that really well, but I prefer the isolation I get with the 280s. They both will do the job just fine though.
