I had this awesome $50 gift certificate which appeared in my inbox from Guitar Center begging to be used, so yesterday I did just that and picked up a new pair of headphones. The pro audio dept. guys at the register were flustered, questioning what I could have done to deserve such lavish monetary gifts from their employer. I let them know that I was a loyal customer. I chose these Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro phones on their recommendation, bolstered by the fact that they were far and away the most comfortable of the 12 or so pairs they had on display. And yep, so far so good. And the 18db of ambient isolation is just golden for getting stuff done here at Soapbox, where a nu-metal band is shredding the live room.
