Hi Dino, long time no talk! Smile

I found the Amazon.com page for these headphones. There are a ton of reviews here: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD201-Closed-Back-Headphones/dp/B0007XJSQC

This is why i went old school....

I went to my local Goodwill thrift store and purchased a classic pair of Pioneer SE-50's and had a freind of mine rewire them from the old school headphone jack to the new school headphone jack they sound awesome....

I truly recommend buying old school if you want a classic flare with modern appeal.

I've owned a pair of Koss SST-6 headphones for over 20 years. I still use them every night while watching TV. They still sound great and they are extremely comfortable.

Headphones I use at home are Denon DN-HP1000.

In-ear ones I use on the go are Sony MDR-EX300/BLK, they were on sale when I picked them up. I had some Monster Beats by Dre (given as a gift), but I still preferred the Sony's.

Best headphones I've heard so far, were Grado GS1000's on a RA1 headphone amp.

Since buying the HD201s, I've gone all the way. My iPod Shuffle is now connected to a pair of Sennheiser MX560 earphones and my iMic now has a Sennheiser PC131 headset permanently plugged into it. Talk about a loyal customer! Wink

Funny that Apple doesn't let you set your iTunes preferences to record at 320 kbps any longer. Unless I'm missing out clicking something 256 kbps is the current highest setting for recording.

VBR encoding needs to be turned off in the custom settings for 320kbps.

Thanks Ben_Tex,
Now I have to question whether 256 VBR is better than 320 CBR. If 256 VBR is an average perhaps it is using beyond 320 kbps in "demanding passages".

Sorry to go off topic from the headphones, but at least the topic of high quality audio is still relevant.
Thats all I see in the import CD Preferences is "128 kbps" & "High Quality Plus"
were can I find 256 VBR and 320 kbps????
I'm clearly missing something!

To stay on topic.
I don't care for Headphones that surround my ear.
I have been buying Sony headphones that cover
(sit on top) of my ears. Yah.....yah.......I know
their not as good as headphones that block out
all noise by encasing both of your ears but I
HATE that. Can anyone recommend something
decent? My old kind a' mid priced Sony MDR-V150
headphones are thinking about failing.
Remember.....headphones that sit "ON TOP" of the ear
and not cover or surround your entire ear.
Its claustrophobic enough here on The Rock.

Thanks!!!!!!!

Yes - go for it! Knock yourself out, for the highest quality possible. HD space costs nothing these days. For the ultimate sound quality of course, you want to use Apple Lossless Encoding, rather than MP3...

Thanks for the advice. Some of my music is AAC and some is MP-3, it depends were I get it.
Then I'll have iTunes convert it to whatever I need.
BTW, your Avatar looks lifelike.
