The Phiaton MS 300 are by far my favorite pair of headphones while traveling. I can't even begin to imagine what the PS 500's sound like.

Need to replace my aging Sennheiser HD580's. Luckily the Phiaton's include a mini-jack. My McIntosh C46 preamp only accomodates mini-jacks. Why Mac chose this input jack is way beyond me.

And so I need some new headphones badly. Buds don't cut it.

I admit I never heard of that manufacturer/brand before, I can just hope that these headphones do live up to their promises, because I've been disappointed by so many other headphone models in the past.

The looks of the headphones are better than on the picture above, the cup housing is covered with (real?) leather, the overall built quality also seems much better than in the foto above.

Can they sound better than my 580's. I'll let you know if I win.
