Review is live: http://www.head-fi.org/t/812816/review-cascadia-audio-talos-the-best-v-shaped-headphone-under-500   Yeah, I love em.
The Good: Price/Quality ratio; Comfort; Bass quality/quantity; Musicality; Imaging. The Bad: Requires a powerful amplifier. Tonal Balance: V-Shaped Style: Circumaural semi-open. Cost: $250 at Cascadia Audio   Reviewing Process & Background I knew Mad Economist as a fellow mod on Reddit’s /r/headphones community. A while back he had mentioned that he was working on a Fostex T50 mod and asked if I’d like to hear it when he finished the tuning, and enthusiastically I...
From what I remember the HE560 wasn't super hard to drive. The K5 has a good amount of power also.
I will have my review out tomorrow, but unless you need high isolation, the Talos are the best v-shaped headphone under $500 without a doubt in my mind. When I first heard them all I could think of was how they reminded me of the HiFIMan HE560 with similarities of the ZMF Blackwood, at least than half of the price.

Might be a small layer of dust on these, I haven't used them in ages.     Headphones   Audio Technica A900 - $90 - Very good condition 8.5/10.  Audio Technica...
  The Good: Dual micro-SD slots; Ease of navigation; Use as a DAC; Multiple audio output options; EQ and gain options. The Okay: Touch-screen responsiveness is spotty; Some touch functions aren’t intuitive; Overall user experience is just okay; Sound quality; Power output. The Bad: No search functionality; Price to quality ratio; No built-in memory. Tonal Balance: N/A, EQ functionality makes it variable. Cost: $348   Reviewing Process I’ve had the DX80 as my...
I have the A900ti but they're kind of beat up, not sure how to judge them at this point =(
Easily the weirdest sounding headphones I've ever heard while still sounding enjoyable. Weird bloomy mid-bass without too much in the sub, yet it doesn't sound thin. I dunno man like a weirder more colored A900. I need to listen more.
