@ James:   Hah. I suppose they are darker and neutral (if that makes sense). The SR60is are definitely brighter (so I've heard). Clear and detailed would be nice, as well as a stronger, tight bass presence.   How are the 003s on string bass? Do you get the woody sound or something looser? "Club-like" is not what I'm looking for. More like tasteful, tight bass.
So I've tried asking around and not a lot of people I've asked have tried the FA-003s.   I'm more or less torn between these and the ATH-ESW9as. What would you all suggest for someone who listens to electronic/glitch-hop/downtempo, jazz, classical?   I currently have the HD555s and like the neutral signature.
I asked for help about a week or two ago and I got some good ideas, though I've been refining what I want.   So to recap my search: I'm looking to get a decent pair of closed-back headphones that would replace my HD555s. If they travel well, that's awesome, though not necessary. I listen to electronic + jazz + classical (european and indian), if that helps.   I've narrowed down my search to the following: FA-003 ATH-ESW9a B&W P5 HD25-II   And I think...
Well, I mean the portability should be for me to be able to take it to a hotel and use it there. Not so much a plane/train/automobile thing, rather a pack-up and go thing. To this end, I was really thinking that the FA-003s might be a great upgrade from my HD555s. The reviews I'm reading on the P5 all say it's a bit uncomfortable... :/   An additional question, if I may: what do you think about the E7 / E9 DAC amp combo for travel? I will be using my iDecco at home, but...
I have an upgrade question and I totally want to keep the main page a bit cleaner:   I'm planning on upgrading or at least changing from my Senn HD555s. I very much like the type of cooler, natural sound that they have and am looking at a few replacements: FA-003 (I have the DBA-02s and I'm trying to get them fixed, but that's a different story... :/) ATH-ESW9a HD650/600 HD558   Do you guys have thoughts on the matter? I listen to mainly...
Thanks a lot for the reply.   Yeah. As I've been searching more and more, I figured that actives might be an option instead of an amp + passives. I'm looking at the passive route right now, though.   So I like the sound that my ATK M50s are giving me. Not necessarily clinical, something warmer, but nothing too bright. Something that has a decent amount of bass. No earth shaking or super loud music necessary. My thought is that the amp will add some color too....
So I figured I must have missed something by getting a bunch of views and no responses... :/   I looked at this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/497014/what-s-the-next-step-up-from-the-audioengine-a5-s   And I think for now I'm looking at a low-budget amp (like the Rotel RA-972 Amp) and a pair of the Swann M200 mkIIs. Thoughts? Would I be able to drive headphones using this?
Full-disclosure: Newly registered to Head-Fi, but have been reading for some time. :)   So I'm VERY new to the whole Hi-Fi audio scene and, as such, have been doing a lot of research. I have a pair of HD555s and DBA-02s and M50s, so I'm getting my feet wet with the headphone scene (not without the help of Head-fiers! :D). However, I'm looking to replace a busted set of Z5500s in my bedroom. I mainly used them for music when I was cleaning up or just reading or when I...
