cannot wait!
What 'phones did you end up getting?

A word of warning: it is not uncommon for people's first reactions with nicer headphones to be like, "this is it?" Give it some time, and after a little bit of getting used to them go back to your old ones, then you'll understand. Cheers!

Guy I work with saw the crappy $20 earbuds I usually listen with and recommended Audio Technica ath-m50x - said I'd hear a difference without breaking the bank. Any recommendations for when I want to upgrade again?

Already hearing a difference in music of course (Now I know why I wasn't supposed to rip MP3's at 128 when I was younger...) but also even on Netflix.

And look at that, Dirty Epic (Dirty Ambi) has just been put up on youtube.

Re: Dubnobasswithmyheadman: 20th Anniversary 5-CD Deluxe Boxset
The ATH-m50 is a great start. I'm in the same mid-fi ballpark with my DT770s. The next step up in the same vein (closed back over ear), according to the internet at large, would be the Mr Speakers Mad Dogs. They're a custom modded headphone that gets rave reviews all over. If you wanna branch out a bit, take a look at the Sennheiser HD 5xx or 6xx series. The HD 600 and 598 specifically are considered benchmark headphones, maybe not the absolute best of the best, but very good headphones that many can refer to for comparisons. They are open back and very well regarded. Less bass because the low frequencies don't have anything to bounce off, but more space between sounds as they have more air to work with and move. There is zero isolation though, you hear everything around you and everyone around you hears what you hear, so they're more of an at home set.

In order to prevent further derailment of this thread, check out reddit.com/r/headphones and head-fi.com. Head-fi starts to get into the snake oil side of audio gear with talk of cables making a huge difference and what not, but there's a lot of good info there too.

Sorry about your wallet....

Just checked on the HMV Japan site, it looks like the bonus tracks on Disc 6 are just live tracks pulled from the 3 disc Live in Tokyo set.

Disc 6

日本盤のみのボーナス・ディスク[予定]
01. Mmm...Skyscraper I Love You (Live In Tokyo 2005)
02. Rez (Live In Tokyo 2005)
03. Dark Train (Live In Tokyo 2005)

But is disc 6 DVD or CD? I dont think we have DVD footage of the Tokyo 2005 gig.

It's a CD. And there were a handful of small QuickTime vids from that gig posted to uwlive.com years ago.
