    Both Ray Samuels SR-71A and Gilmore Lite are very good amps too.

    For less than $100, I suggest you to DIY an amp. You can make a clone Grado RA1 for less than $20.

    I believe it will sound smooth and bodied (the usual sound characteristics associated with tube amps), as compared to op-amp driven ones.

    I can't wait to test it. If you need help fabricating a casing, let me know. My brother-in-law owns a metal and steel fabrication business.

    yah can.. no problem. at first i was thinking of making a prototype casing... where the mould is made from machining into "cibartool" and just poor resin over it....

    havent ventured into the design process yet. but i am doing alot of readup before i go buy the parts this weekends.


    so exciting..

    exactly copied from the audiophile thread,

    hi all
    I'm looking to get a set of cans but have no idea what to get
    I'm not brand concious but only ask that the cans are circumaural ( to isolate me from noisy classmates when studying ) , comfortable and the sounds nice.

    my budget is around $100

    thanks!

    ps: I have went down to Jaben to try some headphones and really liked the Denon AH1001 but its a little to ex for me

    haha
    too lazy to retype
    thanks again!

    You want quality have to pay for it. Did you try any of the entry level Audio techinca line like the sq-5 or fc-700 ?
