AKG 550, plugged into amp, works blindingly, so no need for a headamp. Cheaper to!! I am a skinflint.

AKG k240 monitor 600 ohm with a Bottlehead Quickie modified into a headphone amp.

The high impedance vintage K240 does not sound at all like the current production 55 ohm version.

DIY Lawton-modded Denon AH-D2000 with J$ earpads
iBasso D14

This combo blows me away every day, especially given the modest price. I hear stuff with this setup that often has people calling me a liar. My hearing's not actually that great: this setup is just nicely revealing while still being musical.

I've got the K550 Mk1 and they are very good.
Also have the Soundmagic HP100 and very good as well, on par with the AKG's

But Richer Sounds has the AKG K550 Mk2 for £109.95 so bargain
