The Beyers often require hefty amping to show their true potential. Did you amp them properly when you audition them? I don't have any experience with Beyerdynamic headphones but according to most people, they certainly don't lack bass or clarity (at least for the DT880, which is often consider a detail monster). I believe the early Ultrasone Pro 750s used to be made in EU but I don't know if you can find those now, no way to know before buying. And I'm pretty sure EWS9s...
Also, if you intend to buy ESW9 off ebay (or even amazon), beware of fakes. I'd recommend buying them from an authorized dealer just to be safe. As far as comfort goes, I don't find their on-ear design to be a problem since the clamping force is just right for my small/medium head.
ATH ESW9 may be a good option, they have great bass for being such small cans, but if you listen mainly to electronic, I think either Ultrasone Pro 900 or Pro 750 (cheaper than the Pro 900 but should be close in sound quality) will be better as they have more energetic treble compared to that of ESW9 (quite warm, loses some details in treble). I'd avoid the ATH A900 and A900X as I think they have a weird upper-mids spike which makes the whole sound sig seem unnatural to...
Probably will be there, trying to get my friend in, too :) May also bring some gears if he's willing to drive us from OC.
Superma,   For those genres, I think the HFI-780 will serve you well. They have better attack than most Sennheisers so they're more suitable for rock/pop/hiphop. The Senns excel at jazz/classical, etc. I auditioned the Momentum (over-ear) at a store, didn't like them at all, many people do though. They just felt really slow and bass was not so tight. HFI-780 is really good entry phone for the types of music you listen to, V-shaped sound, great treble extension, good...
What's your music preference? Is it strictly for listening on-the-go?

Hello, As title says, I'm looking to buy a pair of DT770 Premium edition in excellent/good condition (I think those are also referred to as 2005 edition), the ones with grey plastic earcups similar to those of the T70p. Prefer to buy the 600 Ohm version but willing to consider 250 and 32 ohm too. I'm not looking for either DT 770 Pro or T70p, just the DT 770 Premium. If you have a pair you'd consider selling, please pm with your offer. CONUS only for now. Thank you...
  The V2 is out of production and replaced by V3. These amps pop up once in a while in the FS forum here and often for a very reasonable price. If you can't find a used Neco amp now, I'd suggest to wait and save some more for the V3. Compared to other competitors in this price range, the Neco is too good to pass. But again others' opinions might differ. I liked the PA2V2 too when I had it, drives the K701 alright but Neco amps are obviously better and more powerful. Good...
Since you live in the UK, have you looked into the Neco Soundlab portable amps? They're available on UK ebay and are handmade by a seller named Neco. He has desktop amps too but the portable should fit your budget. They're quite good for the price and drive 300 ohm headphones easily. The V3 portable sound can rival those from low budget desktop amps (IMO) and its portability is a plus. I had both the E9 and the O2 and did not like either of them (both were gone in less...
