Headphones

So, I'm in the office, on a break, listening to JAZZRADIO and all I've got are these generic headphones.

Help me out.

What can I do to improve my music time at work?  Headphones?  Etc.?

Onkyo DP-X1 DAP and a pair of ZMF Ori's.  Or your DAP of choice (whether a dedicated player, smartphone, etc.) going into a ZenHead and out to your ZMF's.  Or if you want something more portable on the headphone side, some CIEM's could be a nice alternative.  I love my Unique Melody Miracles.  

I have auditioned many other headphones and a few amps/players if you had a certain price in mind....

For Headphone listening, that I rarely do now, I use a Taboo III amp and a pair of Audeze LCD 2.2 with Toxic Cables, White Widows balanced cables.  I also have the Sennheiser HD 800 but wouldn't recommend them.  They are too bright for my tastes.  There are mods that attenuate this trait though I haven't done them.

+1 on the Taboo.  I've had mine over a year now and love it! ...if you have space on your desk Smiley
