I have been looking and thinking about those...Im not sure at the moment whether I need another pair of easy to drive headphones like the M80. 

I have been using my Grado's and T70p's as well as my IE6 with my iPad and iPhone and to be honest they all work really well with these devices. I think I will hold off on more headphones at the moment. Instead I think I am going to use the money to get some custom ear pieces for my IE6 and finish off some mods on my Bocote Cupped Grado's (change the SR80 drivers for Magnum Drivers and recable these with 24 AWG Litz Copper, also going to get some aluminium gimbals and a leather headband).

I will review the headphone situation in a couple of months but will more than likely end up going for a pair of Audeze LCD2's or possible might try the Beyer T1's  excellent!

Thanks for the help on the headphone front and I will let you know what I think to the rPac when I have had some time with it next week.

Jason
