Pretty much all of my audio products are Sennheiser. I love their headphones but I do own a pair of CX-300 earphones and well... the sound is good but they basically started to disintegrate a few WEEKS after I bought them. And yes I took very good care of them. I recently gave up on mobile high fidelity all together and just use the crappy ones that Apple supply for on the go use. I save the high quality experience for the 558's when I'm at home.
I'm about to buy a new pc monitor, my 17" lcd has served me very fine for many years (5 or 6!) but now that I'm going to work with the computer and I will spend many hours in front of the screen, I fancy something a little more decent.
I'm aiming at a 22" screen, HD-ready/HDMI not mandatory (I couldn't care less in fact) but decent contrast, nice design and deep blacks. Oh, and I obviously don't have unlimited funds, more like a 75-100€ range (and I know prices change notably from country to country so it's rather useless to tell you my bedget - I know). Any specific recomendations, anyone?
"Some of the ideas we started out with on Achtung Baby started to come into focus on the tour as we played around with the new stage set, the TV screens, the whole concept of a TV station on the road. It struck a chord in us and the music that came out on Zooropa was very influenced by the tour. Normally it's the other way around; you put an album together and then you go off on the road and you're drawing from the album for your inspiration."

did you know
During the ZooTV Tour U2 introduced a new stage concept called the B-stage. It allows for more intimate and stripped-down performances of songs, later used by Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and Coldplay amongst others.
