I have used them up until very recently and they are quite astonishing, but I have a pair of Sennheiser Momentum 2 that I find equaly as good IMO.

Iíve given up recommending headphones mostly because we all seem to hear things differently.
One thing though: the PM-3 is a planar headphone and will sound very different than your usual dynamic drivers. Planars tend to have incredibly low distortion numbers which in return gives you a crystal clear window into the music...yet some donít like this. Personally I think itís to do with habit. Most of us have grown up with dynamic drivers in our earbuds/headphones/speakers and arenít used to this level of low distortion....yet we donít really Ďhearí this kind of distortion but more feel it. Many prefer the extra punch that comes with dynamic drivers and distortion.
Personally I absolutely love planars. The bass region in particular is to die for. Electronic music fans should do themseśves a favour and listen to a planar once in their lives and hear everything theyíve missed up until then.

Also, the PM-3 has rather small earpads so it may not be around the ear but rather a large on-ear headphone you end up with.
Best of luck:)

If you want a very decent set of cans for a pretty low price, get some Sennheiser HD 201s. Great value for a low price (possibly under $30-40 in the US), and they respond really well to EQ too imo. If you have a relatively cheap DAP like mine they actually suit those better than a more expensive set.

I listen to FLAC rips of prog (vinyl + CD) my player, and at that price you really can't go wrong in terms of the sound you get (especially compared to some other similarly-priced cans - some of the "cool" brands can be way more expensive and sound much crappier!)
MacGyver can do a super guitar solo with a broom and an elastic band. Can you do better?
