LCD3 IS way above my budget. Anything else besides the Hifiman. Maybe the 400's would do..
Most of my time I am rocking out to groups like Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, God is an Astronaut. On the flip side I listen to what some call Post modern type Ambient music for the likes of Lanterna... I have tried AKG Q701 and was almost perfect. What happened was the bass was not there and I thought the highs where a little harsh. That and they where too big for my head.. Too loose. Senn HD650 just sound to warm or muddy to me.

OK. So it looks like my try at the AKG Q701 is not going to work. Not enough low end and the highs can be a touch harsh at times. I still have the Senn HD650 after testing them against the BT880 and the AKG. Looking for the Senn HD650 but with a more clear sound. More 3d sound or instrument separation. The Senn's are a little foggy to me. Sorry I can't really explain it correctly. Maybe this would better describe the sound. Take the HD650 and turn down the mids and raise...
