    Hi,

    I have an HD-3 which I love, but don't know which headphones to buy.

    What would you guys recommend?

    I'm sorry if you have already answered this question elsewhere, I can't find a record of such a thread.

    Thanks

    Charlotte

    The usual suspects:

    Noise blocking earphones:
    Sony MDR-EX71 (~£35 from Dixons)
    Shure E2c (~£58 from www.dabs.com)
    Shure E3c (~£85 imported, £115 from dabs.com)
    Etymotic ER-6i (~£80 imported)

    Open, portable / semi-portable headphones:
    Sennheiser PX100 (~£30 from Ask on Tottenham Court Road, www.askdirect.co.uk)
    Koss Portapro (~£50 from Tottenham Court Road)
    You may be recommended Grados, but even with the 'volume hack' there's too little power on hand from the HD3 to do these phones justice

    Closed, noise blocking portable / semi-portable headphones:
    Sennheiser PX200 (~£40 from Ask)
    Sony MDR-V700DJ (~£80 from Ask)
    Sennheiser HD25-1 (~£140 from you know where by now)
