For $99, I'm willing to try some noise-cancelling headphones. And they are VERY nice. How effective the function, I don't know. They get good reviews for everything except the $420 original price. New version is wireless, Newegg was blowing these out. Extremely comfy, though tighter than my KEF M500 on-ear ones. Better sound with the N-C engaged, really deep bass without any sign of boominess.

Picked up a pair of "B-stock" KEF Egg speakers to bring to work for use as "computer speakers." Overkill? Not yet. When I add a small sub...that'll be when it hits the overkill button hard. :D

And I thought my JVC HA-SZ2000s (i.e., '18" Subwoofers for Your Head') were radical with a mere TWO drivers per side!

I am really tempted to check the UFOs out, if only for bragging rights!

Those look awesome! Unfortunately the Momentum over the ear Senn's just don't fit me as the earcups are too small for my Dumbo sizes ears :mad:.
They've recently redesigned Momentum/HD1 and these fit nicely. I have the same problem - large head, bigger ears! I made sure they fit by trying on a (non-Pink Floyd edition) pair at BB before I ordered... They sound awesome, the noise cancelling is pretty good and look better in person:

I'd like those too but the main application of noise-cancelling headphones for me is airline travel and those wouldn't pack easily.

Got this in the mail several days ago. Not sure exactly what I am going to do with it but couldn't pass on the price.
It will run at full range till it rolls off the frequency at the higher end. Why not suspended from the ceiling facing upwards a few so inches away from the reflected ceiling surface are we starting to get the idea?

Use anything but that Dolby DSU/dts upmixer it sounds dreadful! Its okay as discrete Atmos, but the upmixers are lousy. Use an external matrix decoder on the surrounds to create a centre and matrix ambiance or effects with the rear surround from the decoder its a lot more fun.

So yeah fit up on the ceiling in free air it will or should have defused sound spread facing upwards at certain frequencies.

I'd fit up 15" JBL if I could find a good stud to screw into for firm suspension. I have small Kef SP1014 used at present for testing as its lighter-weight.
