    I live in a terrace house and think a set of headphone would benifit my neighbours. I sit about about 6 to 7 mtr from my Hifi and I play a wide veriety of music from Opera, blue, grunge to Heavy Metal. Reading reviews, I am thinking of starting with either Audi-Technic ATH-AD700 or Grado SR80i.
    Questions....Q1. Good or bad choice? Q2. 7mtr cable? Q3. Should I start with a cheap set first? if what do you recommend?

    Q1 - OK.
    Q2 - OK, but get a very high quality extension cable - Google it.
    Q3 - Go with the best you can afford, as long as you're happy with the sound.

    Headphones are perfect for avoiding conflict with fellow house members and neighbours, the Grado SR80i and Audio Technica ATH-AD700 are but great choices. If you haven't already please read this Guide to Full Size Headphones which should help:)
