Grado SR225 and Ultrasone HFI-780. Fun to listen to, not picky of source/power, I'll take either as my main phones any day :)
   x2 on Millett Hybrid. I have the MH original build and it does very well with both SR225 and RS2.
PK3, some say PK2 is not really an upgrade from the PK3. I have not heard the PK2 so I don't know how true that is. For electronic music, I'd stick with Yuin instead of Senn MX earbuds (livelier sound, better treble), the Senn have better bass decay and slightly rolled off treble that may benefit other genres though (jazz, for example).
I didn't like the MX880 while I had them (sounded veiled and uncomfortable to wear). I'll take the PK3 over them any day.
  I have not heard the Pro 900 myself so can't comment on how they fare against 750 but opinions on the 900 are quite polarized so 750 might be a safer choice there.   Another option is Sennheiser Amperior which you can get for <200 refurbished. They're excellent (bass, details and speed are great for EDM) if you don't might on-ear design and a pretty tight clam.
You might want to look into the Ultrasone HFI-2400 and Pro 750 as well, besides the Pro 900.   From my limited experience, the Denon D2000 is not fast enough for EDM though may still be enjoyable due to their great sub-bass performance. I would not choose HE-400 either (though they can do excellently with EDM) in this case because those are sort of picky in amplification (in terms of synergy and power) despite the claim that they can be driven by virtually anything,...
  Thanks very much for your advice on amping the HE-400. I'll see what offers I get then I'll make up my mind :)
Hi all,   This is an interest check for my HE-400 (not sure if I want to part with them yet).   This is the Revision 2 HE-400. I am the second owner, acquired these from another Head-fier around 5 months ago when they were like new with less than 10 hrs. I only put around 80 hours on them. I'd say the cosmetic condition is 9/10 (non-smoking home). Come with all original packaging + extras:   - Headphones - Pleather / Velour earpads - Stock Canare...
These have decent isolation, a tiny bit better than, say Denon D2000. There're many closed-back phones that can outdo them in this department though. But I have a small head so that may have something to do with getting the best seal. My guess is if the CD3000 and DX1000 can't cope with the noise then the K1000 probably won't do any better.
I haven't heard the Pro 900 but people have reported that they have recessed mids and piercing highs (can be cured with simple mods), bass is among the best in their price range though. So if you you're into electronic music there should be no problem, many people enjoy their Pro 900 with other genres as well, it's a matter of taste I guess. I used to have the Pro 2500 which is an open version and sound essentially close to the Pro 750, from what I read, some people still...
