What would be good headphones to use with a p155? Maximum Im wanting to spend is 99 pounds. Some time ago I was recommended by a poster the AKG 240's, any more advice/recommendations by my fellow DP owners?

Cheers

The AKG 240 (both original and MkII) are great headphones for the P155. MkII has a bit more power, originals are more neutral.

I got the Sennheiser HD-555:

I read a few headphone reviews before settling on these. I love 'em!

Thanks Scott, I'll make a mental note of that model,

From my brief look, its going for around the same price as the AKG 240 MKII

Sennheiser HD-518 costs 90 pounds. It's a newer but lower-end model than HD-555 recommended by Scott.
I use HD-558, which should also be similar to HD-518, at a YDP-161 piano and it sounds great.

I just purchased my P155 earlier this week! The headphones I'm using is the Sony MDR-V6, which I bought over 10 years ago - they still sound great and are very comfortable.
