You might be able to get a used Foote Control Systems P3S for that price.

Closed back headphones for listening

Hi all, I lost my pair of Sennhesier hd25 headphones recently, so I'm in the market for some new ones.

I...

I saw it at home and my experience was exactly the same - blaring music and inaudible dialogue. I guess they did it to make the music sound more impressive, which might have worked in the cinema but was just annoying on a small TV speaker.

Have you opened up the Audiofire Console software (I think that's what it's called)? You should be able to control all the internal routing with that.
