    thanks for the link.

    i am surely keeping the HD570 for as long as it lasts, while i am never really into audio stuff that deeply & $$, knowing wads good currently cant be a bad thing. rather than paying for a unit thats obsolete & maybe overpriced (by some stores...).

    i prefer off shelf items with less "upgrade" path, too complicated. for music, i try not to get too distracted by all the gadgets. same goes for photography, less is more.

    Look back a few posts to the Ultimate Ears.

    My jaw hit the floor when I saw the price.

    A Stax SRS-007 MKII earspeakers costs over S$7k. Ultimate Ears are nothing compared to the king of headphones.

    If I am to pay this amount, I would rather buy a hi-fi system.

    If can pry a Sennheiser He90 from its owner, then you'd be looking at S$10K +

    Well.... I believe Wilson has one.

    Strangely, his camera is a humble Ricoh GRD2.

    Yup, along with stuff like the AKG K1Ks
    BTW, the Orpheus was the sweetest thing I've heard, just too bad about the price

    Yes, it is the sweetest thing no doubt but not really a practical solution for everyday casual listening (not even the Stax SRS-007 MKII). The amp unit is huge! Too me, headphones must be portable.

    As I had written above, for that kind of price and function, I would rather invest on a hi-fi system.

    For about $10K, I can setup quite a decent home system that pleases even the critics.

    Go Jade at Shaw Centre. They carry a wide-range of Denon earphones and headphones.

    The uncle there will give you 'student' price even if when you are not a student.

    the Denon AH C350/1 & Sennheiser CX300 & my current Sony share striking similiar designs. Denon being cheapest (but dunno good anot) of the lot. JBL oso have but priced near Sennheiser, so no 'fight' liao.

    damn! temptation!

    I thought of buying a set of headphones/earphones to block out the noise so that I dun have to push up the vol of the Ipod too loud. Any recommendations?

    ok! updates!

    I finally bought an Audio Technica inner-ear headphones ATH-CKM50 after considering my needs, budget and usage.

    Cost me $68 at Stereo Causeway point. As I initially want to keep the MRT noise out, an inner -ear version seems to works better than normal one. and since i dun really need high-end true hi-fi on the road, an decent entry level will do for me.

    Thanks everyone for your contribution to this discussion!

    but i was hoping to try other brands like Denon, AKG, Audio technica ?

    Yes, the AKG K240 Studio. It should costs between $240 and $270. Definitely better (in term of sound quality and built) than the Sennheiser HD280 in my opinion.

    Please read my postings above regarding the K240.

    Bose headphones, earphones (and Acoustimass speakers) sounded awfully colored, separated and boomy. I don't understand why so many people love them.

    The only Bose product I find decent is the 901 speakers.
