BTW.. hoe gaat het?
Nice rec, I dig the styling but they are a little out of the price range.
I decided to go with the Sennheiser's... I figure with their original price point they should be enough bang for my buck. Thanks guys
Whoa, slow down there, son.
First of all, movie soundtracks highly implies that you probably want a hi-fi headphone because there's much "classic" involved. I.E. so you can hear the violin on the most left handed side and distinguish it from the guitar, or whatever, in the center. Quite fascinating, actually. So, here's a list of headphones in different categories (I think you can understand them -- "portable", "studio", and "hi-fi": http://www.hifi-forum.de/viewthread-211-182.html
You can have a look at the ones listed, if you're interested in a specific one, and the Google translate doesn't make sense, PM me. Other than that, really, look for an English-speaking forum. I mean, you're paying 100$+- so you're not low-end, thus should think a little harder about what you buy.
You realize that the HD 280 is noise-cancelling, i.e. you won't hear much of your enviornment anymore? That is, you likely won't hear when your colleague wants to talk with you.
Hoe gaaat het, just had to look it up. You probably speak better Dutch than I do.
I just moved here for studying from Germany. So far, so good!
Oh yeah, and don't forget the most important aspect.. say goodbye to MP3 and hello to FLAC & co (in your case, ALAC).
