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.

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.
