The best headphones I've used are the Denon AH-D5000, also made in Japan. Fabulous sound quality, mahogany cans, super comfy. Unfortunately I can only afford one pair -- for the home and not the office. I'd checkout ONTO as a replacement to the Sennheiser headphones I'm using at work but not from the evil UO.


Man, I truly want a pair of these but too bad they're like $70 at UO.


I'm using it right now! It makes online radio sounds like NEAR CD quality. awesome.

My head is really big and they work perfectly with it. I bought them in Tokyo yesterday for a mere 1500 yen. YAY!!

How do the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones compare to the Denon ones?
We retail most brands of headphones at our store http://www.musicthingz.com but I haven't heard the Denons...
