I had beyerdynamic for many years - then got a pair of Grado 325si - I'd highly recommend trialling these too.

: ) No, i meant we have way more access, possibilities and chances to listen to foreign music. The network allows this open mindedness tremendously. Im grateful to have this chance. But do not get me wrong, copyright is copyright, bad audio quality is bad audio quality. I was talking about the chance to discover other humans visions and dreams within their music world wide. some decades ago, i would not have had this chance...

The Neutronium Alchemist - Peter F Hamilton

Half way through this rather large, epic, book 2 of the Nights Dawn trilogy. Intergalactic, mind bending, space Sci Fi of gargantuan proportions.

Bill, excellent take on this and I planned to do it this way (the casual friend-like activity first, then go from there), so nice to read someone who agrees with my thoughts exactly.  I've found the "wanna go out sometime" approach often doesn't work too well as its too direct and scares some women off, but as you said it may work with older women.

Michael Huygen - Angkor Beautiful, relaxing, melodic ambient.

And a very important release to mention............

Tangerine Dream - Sorcerer 2014 A live recording of this classic soundtrack in their Eastgate theatre prior to playing live in Copenhagen. This 2 disc set also includes music originally intended for the film but never recorded/released. To put it mildly this release is absolutely stunning. Totally blown away by this. Try not to miss out on Sorcerer 2014, your life will be enriched  ;)

Node--Node 2 (DiN). Amazing CD!!! Best of 2014 so far for me

Node 2 is a cracker but in case you haven't you really must check out......

Cosmic Ground

Apart from Nachtplank - Echo Ark, this is album of the year so far for me. One of the best Berlin School type albums I have heard. There is a strong ambient theme to this release also.  8)

Good luck for your research. I can only speak for my K702 headphones that are the same price class like DT880Pro headphones, and they are perfect and smooth, also great 3D listening.
Next time i am in the musicstore, i will try out AKG K812 headphones, just for my interest : )

As someone who entered the dating pool first at 18, then again at 36 (divorce), and the last time at 39 (after a 3 year relationship went bust), I can tell you that the woman's (and your) age is a determining factor. The older a person is, IMO, the more direct you can be. I'm not saying you can ask her "Hey, wanna shag?" but I also know that as I got older, the less women cared about the "opening gambit" and it was more about the middle and end game. While a "coffee" date is cliche, no matter how old a woman is, she wants to feel safe, so the first date needs to be something non-threatening and friendly, e.g.  a walk, coffee, or maybe a daytime movie. OTOH, you can just come right out and ask "Would you like to go out sometime?" That way, you will know her intentions right away - if she says "no" then you are either misreading her or she is not yet ready to make her intentions clear. If she says "yes" well, you're all set. If you want to make it safer, you can ask her to coffee, a walk, or something that people do even if they are not "dating." Dinner or lunch is fine, provided it is not a restaurant that screams "Romance!" Maybe something like "I have read about a new Asian/French/etc. restaurant and want to try it...would you like to join me?" DON'T OFFER TO PAY for goodness sake. For myself, I always took the most direct approach as I got older, simply because I didn't want to beat around the bush (hoo boy...I know). Some women liked that, some didn't. 

Lastly, I agree with Sun Dummy...I have lots of regrets...not for things I have done, but things left unsaid and undone. I've told some women things that I, in hindsight, probably should've kept to myself (unrequited love and all that), but at least I won't be left wondering "If only...."
