I bought a pair of these Fostex to replace my broken Sennheiser cans. Got them because of the large mod community for this model. But guess what, I like them so much I never modified them. Driving them with a little tube amp is pure listening pleasure.

Headphones are very personal, what works for your head and ears may not work for mine. Some people love Grado headphones - to me they are like hot needles in my ears. Being able to listen to a few sets is a good idea. A Can Jam meeting, if you can attend one, is an easy way to hear a lot of different models

I am no audiophile, but I know skull candy and bozo are utter junk...
You are better of with sennheiser, beyerdynamic, grado, audiotechnica, AKG and such companies. (too many to list, almost all better than bozo junk)
Recently discovered planars, and boy! do they thing! I got two models from HiFiman and one day (may be christmass present) I will go for HE1000.

I like that they mentioned pros and cons of each product, it's easy to get what you want.

Bose and Skullcandy make me think of clueless consumers, not audiophiles.

I auditioned the usual suspects (Bose, Skullcandy, Beats) at a big box store. Beats sounds muddy and Skullcandy sounds like an electric drill. Might be my hearing. One of the Bose sets sounded fantastic, but it was over $400, a stupid price.

Salesman really pushed Skullcandy. He promised that no matter which set I chose that I would be very happy. I pointed out that I listened to different genres of music and NEVER his mindless boom-boom music. He looked puzzled.

I ended up with some cheap Audio Technica cans which have some shortcomings (primarily that they look cheap) but for the price it doesn't even matter. Music is clear, and they play loud enough to be used as desktop speakers.

I don't get paying $200 for some crappy headphones that look ridiculous to boot.
